Garlic scapes or garlic flowers?

When we began farming garlic in Quebec (Canada) in 1989, garlic scapes were very rarely used and commercialized. So we began using the term “garlic flowers” instead of garlic scapes and have since grown fond of it!

The benefits of lactic fermentation

The lactic fermentation of our garlic scapes has many benefits:

1) It keeps the products alive and good for your health.

2) It preserves the vegetables for several years through an entirely natural process. Once opened, you can keep your fermented garlic scapes jar in the fridge for up to 2 years! We bet that you’ll finish your jar well before it expires!

3) It creates new flavours, which is why our fermented garlic scapes are so good!

Garlic scapes or garlic flowers?

While the most common term for the main ingredient is “garlic scapes”, when we began farming garlic in Quebec (Canada) in 1989 this was not the case. As garlic scapes were very rarely used and commercialized at the time, we began using the term “garlic flowers” and have since grown fond of it!

The benefits of lactic fermentation

The lactic fermentation of vegetables and our garlic scapes has many benefits:

1) It keeps the products alive and good for your health, thanks to the lactic bacteria and enzymes produced, as well as maintaining the concentration of vitamins, nutrients, and bioactive molecules of raw foods.

2) It preserves the vegetables for several years through entirely natural means without chemical additives or pasteurization.

3) It creates new flavours thanks to the lactic and organic acids produced.

Varieties grown at Le Petit Mas

Since 1989, we have been growing the Music cultivar, known for its large, strong, juicy and spicy cloves, its excellent shelf-life (8 to 12 months) and exceptional resistance to cold and diseases.

In 2012, we received a sample of the Glazed Purple Stripe cultivar from a market gardener. Last year, we began selling this garlic at our online store. Glazed Purple Stripe is a rich and mild garlic. Each bulb has about 10 flat, bronze cloves and a medium shelf-life (6 to 8 months).

To find out more, go to our Varieties and Groups of Garlic in Quebec page.

Grade 2 garlic (irregular, second quality, unappealing…)

At Le Petit Mas, we carefully sort our Quebec-grown garlic and offer only high-quality garlic (Grade 1) to supermarkets.

In order to eliminate food waste, we sell our irregular garlic (Grade 2) through our online store, at food fairs and within the HRI network. In terms of taste, Grade 1 garlic and Grade 2 garlic are equivalent. As for the shelf-life, Grade 1 garlic keeps for longer (8 to 12 months) than Grade 2 garlic (3 to 6 months).
