I harvested my garlic late this year.
We had a trip planned and everything was happening
at once and garlic had to wait till we returned.
It was in the ground too long, (my guess) and when it
was curing, a bunch of the cloves split.
I knew they wouldn't keep for the winter and
there was too much to eat right away,
so I sliced it thin, "slivered" it
and dehydrated it.
It turned out beautiful!
Now it is beautifully packed into bags and pretty jars for winter use and gifts.
