I ♥: fresh purple Italian garlic

29 Nov

I am loving the quality of fresh garlic in Stockholm.  These fresh, purple Italian garlic are in many supermarkets, and they are delicious!  I hardly ever see excellent fresh garlic back in New York — when I buy garlic, they are usually of the dried variety.  The fresh garlic have a soft outer layer that are easy to peel; I find the cloves juicier and slightly spicier than dried garlic, although still pleasant and not overpoweringly “garlicky.”  These garlic are great with sauteed as well as roasted vegetables.
