  • Elephant garlic in Camel CSA’s veg boxes

    Posted on August 20th, 2015 charlotte No comments

    Each elephant garlic clove is as big as your thumb.

    We planted a few of these very expensive garlic cloves just two years ago as a propagation experiment. This season our clever professional growers have cultivated enough to provide one giant bulb for each veg box.

    It has a mild taste and is best roasted or it can be used raw – chopped or grated into salads.
