Garlic facts… Exposed…
  • If the ends of your garlic are dark, then it’s not fresh.
  • Mincing your garlic will give you a more potent flavor.
  • If your garlic has sprouted, it’s still good, but has lost some of it’s flavor. (according to research, I on the other hand enjoy it.)
  • It’s a member of the onion family along with leeks and shallots. (another two of my favorites!)
  • Most of the garlic grown in the US is from California.
  • Never burn your garlic or it will taste bitter.
