Try This: Garlic Blossoms


Here’s a beautiful bouquet for your favorite cook: Garlic Blossoms.

Unlike its brutish big-brother bulb growing underground, these tiny purplish pink blossoms have a gentle flavor that delicately scents salads, vinaigrettes and vegetables.

A quick sauté in a little olive oil, a splash of lemon… that’s all you need to bring out their demure flavor.

So fresh. So easy. So summer.
