Sprouting Garlic
« on: July 28, 2006, 06:47:27 AM »
I have garlic that has started to sprout green at the top. I've heard you shouldn't cook with it (probably a flavor issue?) but can I still use it for medicinal purposes?

As I understand it, once it starts to sprout it looses its potency.  I would go with some fresher stuff.   If it has started to sprout it has been around for a while.  We just harvested our garlic and it is so good!  You just feel better after eating a bunch of it.
