This week on Food For Thought, I learned the in’s and out’s of harvesting garlic. That’s Gabriola Gourmet Garlic Guy Ken Stefanson with some freshly harvested bulbs that he has painstakingly cleaned. You can find Ken at the Downtown Duncan Farmers’ Market most Saturday mornings, and at many of the other farmers’ markets on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

Yes, Ken Stefanson does mail order, and he also makes delicious chocolate bars, some of them with garlic or chili!
Here’s a shot of Ken at the Duncan Farmers’ Market. Behind him is his niece, and in the background that’s Helma Stewart of Cottage Farm. In the foreground you can see some of Ken’s ‘value-added’ garlic products. I always keep a jar of his minced garlic, or garlic chutney on hand, and I have a fondness for his soy and sherry cured garlic.
