Though you can get this throughout the year garlic is at its peak in June. Pick out bulbs that have white or purple papery skin. Stay away from any bulbs that are shriveled or feel hollow. You can keep full bulbs for eight weeks. If the bulb is open it will last about two weeks.
Nothing spells summer quite like a Trenette with Jalapeno Pesto. Break out your best seasonal garlic and try this tonight.
