Glorious Garlic

Superfood (in raw form)...Aphrodisiac...Natural Antibiotic...Tasty as it gets...this is why we love garlic!

Everyone should consider growing garlic in their gardens this and every year. Although you often see 3 bulbs for less than $1, we don't advise that sort of garlic over local organic garlic, or your own home grown! Yes it's pungent, it makes your hands smell but oh the benefits far outweigh any worry of bad breath. It adds so much depth to its dishes!

It's used around the world in thousands of dishes and comes in a multitude of varieties.  We love Purple Striped and 'Music' an Ontario variety considered a hardnecked vs softnecked. 

In both world wars garlic was given to soldiers to help fend off gangrene. It wards off food poisoning, helps our hearts by relaxing blood vessels allowing blood to pass more easily, known to decrease risk of various cancers and can help prevent the common cold. Need we say more?!?
