Garlic By Penny Woodward
Garlic has been close to people’s hearts and minds and stomachs for a very long time. Used not only as food and flavouring, but also for medicinal and spiritual purposes, it has been imbued with almost mystical properties. Yet, garlic isn’t just garlic. Its garlicky flavour can be hot, spicy and pungent but also sweet and nutty, and the same cultivar may vary widely with soil and climate. This book shines a light on the mystery and mystique of garlic and heightens its enjoyment with: - Guidelines for growing organic garlic around the country - Descriptions of more than 50 Australian cultivars - Profiles of a number of Australian growers and their garlics - Recipes for cooking, preserving and smoking garlic … and making your own black garlic - Medicinal uses Everything you ever wanted to know about growing your own garlic organically.
