Elephant garlic in Camel CSA’s veg boxes


August 20, 2015

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.

In all our boxes this week:
*elephant garlic bulb
*aubergine OR green peppers
*broad beans OR French beans OR mangetout peas
potatoes (Burlerrow Farm, St Mabyn)

Standard boxes also have:-
extra potatoes
*mixed salad bag
*calabrese OR curly kale

* = grown to organic principles
All produce grown by Camel CSA unless otherwise indicated. Please wash all vegetables and fruit.
