Garlic Cloves in Brine (6.34 oz)

Nissos Greek Foods

$5.95

What would Greek-Mediterranean cooking be without garlic? Yet, peeling it can sometimes be a chore. Enter Nissos, a small family-run company with roots on the Northeastern Aegean island of Lesvos, home to much great food. They’ve sourced real Greek garlic from the fertile Thessaly plain, in Central Greece, peeled it for us and preserved it in a light brine.

This is not just any old garlic. The variety of Platykambou, as it’s called, was first noticed by one of the world’s premiere makers of natural garlic remedies and probiotics, the Japanese nutraceutical company Wakunaga. Garlic Platykambou has an exceptionally high concentration of essential oils and other cancer-fighting nutrients. The University of Thessaly stepped in, and is now conducting studies on the health benefits of this particular garlic variety, aiming to achieve designation of origin status. Platykambou garlic, besides being extraordinarily rich in nutrients and essential oils, is noticeably aromatic, with a complex flavor that derives from this region’s unique microclimate.

Amazing Garlic

Used this first in a Sicilian tomato sauce, this garlic has a little different scent and it was perfect for this sauce. It will be perfect in many things.

Tasty garlic find!

I just received my garlic and could not resist a taste! The garlic has a very rich taste and is not soggy as is often the case with jarred garlic. Would recommend this product highly!.
