Just found this link to a picture of my 2006 crop that I posted to BYAP years back. I get more these days, have built up my stock.

Nice lot of garlic. Thats the only problem when you start out and have to build up the seed stock. The stuff I have in so far would only cover what I need for the next crop. Will have to see what my mate has. I would like to be able to eat some.

Nocky - the ones I grow are also much stronger than what you get in the shop and have heat to them when raw. When I make garlic aoli, if I put a lot in, which I like to, you even get a bit of heat in that :-)

VB this stuff has grown wild for years apparently, use to be a town site and veggie gardens in the spot over 70 years ago, also river that is now gone, garlic grows wild around the old banks and river bed over about 5km, we have no idea on variety but it appears to have evolved into a different garlic to what I have ever seen, Europeans of some description had the settlement originally and has long since broadacre farming country

I think I found a similar thing Nocky. Down Bridgetown way there was garlic growing, well it looked exactly like garlic but it was wild in paddocks, it was really bitter so didn;t bother trying it any further. This may have been partly to do with the fact that it was flowering at the time too.. The flowers were the only reason I noticed it in the first place.

There are heaps of recipes on the net. I do pretty simply. I use 2 eg yolks to every cup of olive oil (I buy good stuff for this purpose and make sure I seal with a suck the air out type wine bottle seal between uses to avoid oxidation), heaps of garlic (ie garlic to taste) and some lemon juice (maybe a tablespoon or 2). I just use my beaters to beat the yolk with the minced garlic and then gradually add the olive oil while beating. I add the lemon juice last - while still beating. Love the stuff on bread as do my kids. I also sometimes add fresh AP grown chives. Lasts for about a week in fridge (but not in our house ;-)).

Thanks, I'll have to try it. I have a string of garlic from my latest crop.

Have you seen the cunning garlic peelers in the shops? A 10cm cylinder of silicone (about 2cm diameter). Put a clove/cloves in the cylinder and roll on the bench and out pop/s the peeled garlic. Saves lots of messing around and smelly hands.

I remember the old days when I didn't know how to get the skin off garlic... Used to cut one end off, then try to peal off the very fine papery skin... I couldn;t believe it when I learned about crushing the clove first, wow it made life so much easier...
