Your mission this week
#TasteAB Mission Inspiration: Alberta garlic is a staple for your dishes
As Jenny Berkenbosch of Sundog Organic Farm tells us, one variety of Alberta garlic can taste quite different from another — from fiery Chesnok Red garlic to Deerfield's mild, earthy and salty flavour. Jenny says you're most likely to find Red Russian garlic in Alberta, as it's hearty and suits the climate. "Firm bulbs, big cloves and a nice, light skin" are the key features to look for when buying fresh garlic. "I use it as a base in almost everything," Jenny says. "I love it with beets in a beet salad, grated raw." Garlic pairs well with fresh Alberta meat, too. "It's delicious in a roast."
If you're inspired to use local ingredients to complete your mission this week, let us know by also tagging your mission #tasteab for an extra chance to get in the paper! Here's some local inspiration from your fellow Gastroposters.
To complete this week's mission, our partners at Save-On-Foods want to help with a coupon to save on a prime rib, which pairs perfectly with garlic. Print off this coupon and take it to your closest Save-On-Foods location, then Gastropost it!
