Garlic is a natural immune system booster that helps the body fight infection and viral attacks. In addition garlic provides a long list of health benefits due to its powerful antioxidant properties. Garlic contains a compound known as allicin, which helps lower cholesterol levels, prevent blood clotting, and has been shown to have anti-microbial and anti-cancer properties. Garlic is low in calories and high in nutrients, containing manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, selenium, and fiber.
The best way to enjoy garlic's health benefits is to eat it raw, or close to raw. Temperatures above 140°F destroy allicin. Add garlic at the very end of the cooking process, after you’ve removed the heat source, to best preserve and enjoy its flavor and health benefits.Eat well!
(Marbled Purple Stripe/Hardneck) 5-7 cloves per bulb. Bogatyr garlic originated in Moscow and is relatively rare. Beautiful marbled purple bulbs with easy to peel brown clove wrappers. It provides an initial spicy bite when raw but does not linger on the palate, making it ideal for recipes using raw cloves, such as pesto or hummus. Fat cloves are well-suited to roasting with a pleasing garlic flavor. Also, well-suited to fresh eating, sauteing, stir-fries, pickling, and soup. This is a consistent and productive garlic that holds well in long-term storage. This variety will grow well in most regions of the United States.
(Porcelain/Hardneck) 4-6 cloves per bulb. Great for salsas and pesto; just the right amount of bite, but not too spicy raw. White bulbs consist of big, easily-peeled cloves in pink and yellow wrappers. Classic roasting garlic, with a smooth buttery flavor and texture. Georgian Crystal is an extra oily garlic making it a healthy choice for its high allicin content: allicin is known to lower cholesterol and increase circulation, boosting the immune system. Well-suited to fresh eating, sauteing, stir-fries, pickling, and for inclusion in soups, pestos, hummus and any recipe calling for a clove of your favorite garlic.
