Garlic, Scapes, Fermenting Cloves

Postby Eugene » Thu May 21, 2020 8:13 am

To many garlic scapes to freeze. Garlic scapes are in the dehydrator. After dry will put in the blender and chop into powder for long term storage.

House smells like garlic.

Going to have too many garlic bulbs to use or store. Think I will try fermenting some garlic cloves. Saw that on the internet.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Eugene, garlic wine doesn't sound very appealing to me. :lol:

Fermenting garlic, same process as making sauerkraut.

Internet also had recipes for fermenting radish. Might give radish a try when they come on the farmers market.

Back when, I made onion wine. Wasn't bad. Of course, after 20 years in the military I use to think Ripple and Thunderbird were good wines.

Thanks for the tip, we are getting scapes and trying to sell them is tough, dehydrating sounds like a good idea!
Scape butter is pretty good on steaks and burgers!

6 July. Hot, darn hot, and humid. Nothing drying out. Been that way for just under a week.

Moved the garlic from the front porch to the basement to keep them from cooking and rotting. House A/C with a fan on the garlic to dry and cure them.
