Why does your garlic bulb roots have dirt on them?

Why does your garlic bulb roots have dirt on them?

Our garlic is organically grown with no use of chemicals or bleaches.

Our garlic is dug from the rich clay and volcanic soils of the mid Hunter Valley and brushed to remove the excess dirt. The roots are then trimmed and the garlic is hung to dry naturally, leaves and all.

Once dried, the outer wrappers are brushed off to expose a clean garlic bulb. The leaves are then trimmed, ready for shipping. However a small amount of dirt will almost always cling to the trimmed root base – these roots are how you can tell you are buying genuine Australian garlic – and will not harm the taste or storage of the garlic in any way.

When you have used all the cloves off your delicious bulb, put your root base in the compost and enjoy the inclusion of a little piece of rich Pokolbin Wine Country in your own soil.
