Garlic

Garlic or Allium sativum as it is more formally named, is a species in the onion genus and according to Wikipedia  has a history of human use that dates back over 7000 years.  Even the Ancient Egyptians realised that it not only tasted delicious but could be used for all sorts of medicinal purposes such as respiratory problems, poor digestion and low energy.  Now however, we tend to be associate it with delicious meals and fighting colds.

If you like us, you’re a serious fan then you will understand how thrilled and excited we were to be given this bag from a very very generous friend (who had got a little over excited when planting up seedlings earlier in the year).

Brimming with delicious, highly pungent bulbs of garlic and several elephant garlics too, we’re bursting with ideas and are busily planning all the delicious suppers we can conjour up!  Just be sure not to come too close! 😉
