Memorial Day weekend is rapidly approaching, and with it comes the advent of summer – barbeques, swimming pools, beaches, festivities, and – of course – fresh, California-grown garlic.
Harvest of Christopher Ranch’s California heirloom garlic begins in early June, running through August, but our California garlic is available fresh year round.
Fresh California garlic is a must in menu planning for barbeques, as it’s great in dips – like guacamole and fresh salsa – in side dishes – like salads -and as a complement to any barbequed item – meat, chicken, seafood, pork, vegetables, etc.
And, don’t forget to top the meal off with a bowl of garlic ice-cream – it tastes much better than it sounds, I promise.
Listed below are some of our favorite barbeque dishes that boast a zesty, garlic flair.
