Just like Reggae, this garlic gives off plenty of happy vibes and brings a light accent to the mood (of any meal you are preparing). This is the garlic of most small organic farms in Canada, and is generally thought to have come here in the 1980's. Just like Pilsner, this is a porcelain type garlic known by its papery skin, and easy to peal, largish cloves. It is a hardneck with large scapes and with beautiful rose-colored cloves. It grows very well in our garden.
Raw Reggae garlic is fragrant, and offers what many of us would consider the traditional garlic flavour. It's more of a moderate when it comes to hotness. Reggae is usually sweeter than most porcelains but is spicy when raw. When it's cooked it brings the flavours that brings all the joys to the yard. It's what chef's want, the balanced earthy flavour representing the bass and drums of your meal. It's great for roasting too!
“It is not really an exaggeration to say that peace and happiness begin, geographically, where garlic is used in cooking.” X. Marcel Boulestin (1878-1943)
