Green Garlic

Green Garlic is a is really just a young garlic plant. Green garlic looks very much like chives or scallions – they are long and slender with tender green tops, and the white parts can be tinged with pink or purple.

Selection and Storage: Green garlic will last a few days in the refrigerator, much in the same way as spring onions or scallions. Wrap stalks in a damp paper towel and place in loosely sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Culinary Uses: Green garlic has a milder, fresher, and sweeter taste than regular garlic cloves. The whole plant can be eaten, and it has a spicier, more intense bite than scallions, but can be used in much the same way.
