Garlic scapes or garlic flowers?
While the more common term for its 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 product 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.
