Penner Garlic

LP Farm Store bought this garlic at a farmers' market in 2016 and the vendor did not know the name of the garlic.  It is the garlic that began the garlic journey for the Farm Store.  The characteristics suggest it's a porcelain and most likely music.

Green Garlic

Green garlic is the first to be ready in the garlic line up.  It is similar to green onions and can be used the same way.  The roots, bulbs, stem, and leaves are all edible.  It is available in June and can be bought at markets and through the Fireweed Food Hub.

Green garlic is sold by bunches, similar to green onions.

Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes are the second to be ready in the garlic line up.  There are many ways to use scapes and Lorissa loves to make pesto.  She will freeze the pesto in ice cube trays so that she has pesto throughout the long Manitoba winters.  Scapes can also be diced and frozen for later use.  Other recipes can be found on Instagram.  

Garlic scapes are sold by weight.
