Product Information

Garlic bulbs range from medium to large, averaging anywhere between 5-8 centimeters in diameter, and consist of several cloves arranged in a number of layers depending on the variety. Each clove of garlic is encased in its individual wrapper, and the bulb itself has layers of thin, flakey wrappers to protect the cloves. Often referred to as the “stinking rose,” whole Common garlic actually has a very mild allium scent and taste. However, Once the cloves are crushed or pressed, enzyme compounds are released, producing a sulfur-based molecule known as allicin, which is responsible for giving garlic its renowned pungent aroma and flavor.

Garlic, botanically known as Allium Sativum, is the name dedicated to many softneck, artichoke varieties that are commonly found in commercial markets. Softneck varieties are favored as they are easy to grow, less particular about growing conditions, slower to bolt, and produce more cloves per bulb. In general, 98% of Common garlic found in the supermarket is one of two types, California Early and California Late. A unique feature of California Early is its ability to be used to make powders, seasonings, and salts. Both varieties are hardy and offer subtle differences for the commercial market to sell year-round.

Applications

Garlic can be consumed in both raw or cooked applications. Raw garlic tends to have a stronger flavor than cooked; and crushing, chopping, pressing or pureeing garlic releases even more of its oils providing a sharper, more assertive flavor than slicing or leaving it whole. Common garlic can be used in any dish that calls for garlic such as garlic chicken, spaghetti Bolognese, potato soup, to stews, but it also does especially well as the central flavor in marinades, dressings, sauces, and salts. Roasting garlic will enhance its flavor and add a subtle sweetness. Pair Common garlic with acidic fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, tomatillos, and citrus, meats such as poultry, beef, pork and seafood, herbs like basil, thyme, and oregano, and other vegetables such as artichokes, snap peas, broccoli, asparagus, and Brussel sprouts. Common garlic will keep between one to four months, depending on the specific variety, when stored in a cool and dry place.
