Green Garlic

Green garlic is garlic--harvested before it begins to form cloves and bulbs. It's similar in shape and texture to green onions, and can be used much the same way, but--surprise!--it tastes like garlic. It can range from quite mild to spicy, but never as hot as mature garlic. We eat it whole like green onions with egg-salad sandwiches, chopped in omelets or tacos, and sauteed and added to pretty much anything. Not oatmeal.
