Hang the braid preferably out of direct sunlight or over your stove (direct heat). Hang in a cool location in your kitchen for convenient access.
All of our Garlic Braids are made on the McFadden Farm located in Pottery Valley California. You'll find our Garlic is fresher, bigger, tastier and easier to use than what you typically find in your local supermarket.
Garlic offers a wonderful taste, and seems to bring out the goodness and flavor of anything mixed with it. Garlic was originally braided to extend its useful life..and indeed it does. Our Garlic is picked in July and August, and will be useable until March or April.
