baby garlic


Mild baby garlic, sold in bunches (bottes). In May and June they appear in the markets, especially in Nouvelle Aquitaine and Occitanie, and can be a bit hard to find elsewhere.

People like them in omelettes, sautéed with spring vegetables, with potatoes, or in salads. The taste becomes stronger the longer the aillets are cooked.
