We've been shipping out our garlic all over the United States. We hope you are happy with the produce you receive. It was a tough growing season in Mid-Western Michigan, started with very warm weather in March, then multiple freezes and then extremely hot dry weather until after harvest. We made our best effort to select the best bulbs to ship to you. Please let us know what you think of the garlic.

For soups and sauces, can I use unripened elephant garlic, harvested in April before the bulb is mature, in the same manner as a leek, using green stalks as well as bulb?
Response from Rickertville Farm:
Elephant garlic is actually a type of leek which has a mild garlic characteristics, with an earthy overtone that many people prefer over the heat of true garlic. When harvesting the mature Elephant Leek/garlic it need to cure, age for 30 days, prior to usage or it will have a bitter taste.
However, the scape, or flower stalk, is editable. Since many people sell the Elephant "Garlic" scape as a true garlic scape there should be no reason that the green Elephant leek/garlic would not have the same palatability as it's scape. As for harvesting the green "garlic", and using it as a leek in soups etc, I would suggest tasting it prior to cooking with it.
