Description: Garlic is a bulbous herbaceous, annual, herb, native to central Asia, which can now be found growing in most temperate regions of the world. It can grow to a height of 30-70cm, the leaves form a soft pseudo stem made up of overlapping alternate leaf sheaths, which are long, thin, flat and lanceolate in shape and pale to mid-green in colour. The inflorescences form single globes of many individual flowers that are white to pinkish-purple in colour. The compound bulb is made up of 4-20 crescent shaped pieces known as ‘cloves’, and each clove weighs about 1g.
Brief History: Garlic has been used for centuries, the Ancient Egyptians incorporated it into the diet of their pyramid building slaves to keep them healthy and the Ayurvedic shaman’s of India have used the spice for over 3,000 years to strengthen the heart and purify the blood. In Europe during the middle ages you’d be likely to find garlic nailed to doors to keep evil spirits out during the night. Modern day research has linked chemical compounds contained in garlic to having the ability to prevent colds, act as an antibiotic and even keep the skin looking young.
Ingredients: Dried and granulised cloves of organic Allium sativum.
