The smell of the season: Garlic

Garlic has been on my mind for a few weeks now.  It seems that others are also thinking about it here and here.  The season in Israel for fresh local garlic is only about three weeks long and always falls out just before passover (pesach).  So today, I took a break from cleaning the oven (a long long job) and went to the market for garlic.

Here is the box of garlic that we bought.  Its about 40 pounds (20 kilograms) of fresh garlic.   The car smelled wonderful and there were no vampires anywhere in sight (ok, it was daylight, so its not fair).

Once we got home, another son and I braided it all into two large chains which we then hung outside.

Now our porch smells of garlic.  Pesach is going to be great and garlicy.

May you all have a healthy holiday and remember, party on dudes! and be excellent to each other.
