Harvesting & Cooking with Organic Garlic

organic garlic harvest

I just harvested 80 garlic bulbs from my organic garden. Imagining all the vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, delicious soups, pesto, sauces, dressings, chili, and more that I will cook up this year for personal chef clients and those that come for my organic farm to table classes and organic B&B: tomato sauce, greens in garlic tahini sauce, garlic bread, kale, basil and cilantro pesto,  garlic flavored oils, sweet putanesca sauce, olive tapenade, zesty parsley garlic dressing, chili, minestrone, and more.
