Eric and Joanna’s garlic adventure

If, when standing before the Chert Hollow Farm stall at the market, you tend to stare at Eric’s garlic dry-erase board with a glazed-over look, you’re probably not alone. Even with his helpful guide showing garlics that are good for roasting, others for sauteeing and so on, 12 varieties could seem like overkill to some. But Marcia braved a garlic-tasting a few weeks ago – here are the results.

Note: Eric says he’ll likely have edamame this Saturday, but get there early.

One thought

  1. I had 3.5lb of edamame last week, and will have 9.5lb this week. Still no promises on how long it will last, as I’ve had to hold off people trying to buy their winter freezing quantities already. More and more is coming, barring a major hailstorm or something.

    We think 12 garlic varieties is a few too many, too; one of the goals of both the on-farm tasting and the large customer-based tastings is to help us whittle the varieties down to 8 or 10 that are truly distinct and useful.
