Elephant garlic in our weekly vegetable boxes


June 29, 2016

We all have much sought-after elephant garlic in our veg boxes. The bulbs have been been harvested in their “green” state and should be used soon. Much milder than its smaller cousin (it’s more like a garlic-tasting leek), elephant garlic is best used raw in salads or baked.

In all the boxes:-
*elephant garlic
*bunched carrots
*mixed herb bag – parsley, chives, oregano, mint
*new potatoes (Mark Norman, Bodmin)
strawberries (Mitchell Fruit Garden)
Hispi ‘sweetheart’ cabbage ((Growfair Cornwall)

Standard boxes also have:-
*extra potatoes
*mixed lettuce bag – oak leaf, ‘Freckles’
*spring onions

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