GREEN GARLIC FLOWERS

these beautiful little buds have a very faint scent of honey. but the pungent odor of garlic in their stalks reveals their true persona - green garlic. here in florence, they grow everywhere. i picked up these gems along the roadside on a morning walk. you can make lots of tasty dishes with this very seasonal herb. and, i find it popping up on blogs everywhere! the theme i have been finding is noodles: on april 27th pim gives us a fast, easy and tasty chinese egg noodle recipe. albion and the amateur gourmet go italian
with green garlic pasta dishes. if you are BBQing, throw some whole green garlic stems on the fire. they go very well with all things grilled!

That is a great idea, reminiscent of Cal├žoltada in Catalonia. Make a Romesco sauce to go with it too perhaps?

cheers,
Pim
