Description: Garlic is a bulbous herbaceous, annual, herb, native to central Asia, which can now be found growing in most temperate regions of the world. It can grow to a height of 30-70cm, the leaves form a soft pseudo stem made up of overlapping alternate leaf sheaths, which are long, thin, flat and lanceolate in shape and pale to mid-green in colour. The inflorescences form single globes of many individual flowers that are white to pinkish-purple in colour. The compound bulb is made up of 4-20 crescent shaped pieces known as ‘cloves’, and each clove weighs about 1g.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that only peasants ate garlic in ancient Greece and Rome? The odour eating the spice left after consumption was not relished by the well to do Greek and Roman citizens, the lower classes heartily consumed garlic and it became an emblem of the working classes. In the 12th century Hildegard von Bingen wrote of garlic ‘it ought to be eaten raw because when it is cooked, it is sour, like spoiled wine’, von Bingen judged garlic to be more suitable for consumption for sick people than leeks.
Ingredients: Dried powdered cloves of organic Allium sativum.
