Garlicgarlic cloves

From: Dagele Brothers Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Florida, NY)

According to the New York Times, garlic has been known for its therapeutic benefits since ancient times. Studies have linked it to lower cholesterol, serum triglyceride, and blood pressure levels. Sulfur-containing compounds including allicin give garlic its pungency, along with high levels of vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese and selenium, which seem to be responsible for garlic’s beneficial cardiovascular effects. Allicin is a powerful antibacterial and antiviral agent. You can freeze whole bulbs of garlic and individual cloves, which ends up making the cloves much easier to peel. One of our favorites is roasted garlic, which subdues its intensity to soften and bring out its sweetness!

Garlic Broth
44-Clove Garlic Soup with Parmesan Cheese
