Ravensfield produces organic Red Russian garlic. This is a hardneck variety with a delicious well rounded flavour. The cloves are juicy and easy to peel, and it stores very well. Kept in a cool dry place, a braid can last until next year.
In this year’s crop the bulbs are not large but they are of very high quality.
Braiding is a labour intensive process that extends the storage life of the bulbs. While braided garlic can last 12 months, loose bulbs must be consumed within 6 to 8 months.
Garlic should always be kept in a cool dry place out of direct sun. (So not over the stove or the sink, and never in the fridge).
