Garlic Taste Tests
Karen thinks Armenian garlic tastes “like a garlic should taste”. She says it is not too fiery but it has a strong garlic flavor. She does eat garlic raw and says Armenian is great but Georgian Crystal is too strong for her — it “puts her mouth on fire”.
The garlic was excellent! Thank you! Unfortunately, Joe and I are not good taste testers. We love garlic, but had a hard time distinguishing any of the types. Eaten raw (which we had never done before) we couldn’t distinguish a difference at all. I add garlic to nearly everything…at least all my sautéed vegetable dishes [...]
Hi Chris and Joanne! We had a little party and we roasted garlic and served it with French bread. Here’s what 4 of us said:
Raw Medium kick Ending spicy kick – not as good as music because it’s more mild Flavorful, middle spice, definitely spiced at the end Not so much kick, I liked flavor better Flavorful, mild kick Roasted Flavorful, no kick Sweet, flavorful sweet
Raw Very strong kick, burns the throat. Num!! Spicy all the way through Spicy, yes, but no flavor Fiery kick Fiery kick Roasted Like better than Armenian – tiny bit more spice and flavor Smooth, mild Same as Armenian – mild, tastes like squash
Raw Strong kick, full flavor, sweeter side Definite Sweetness, unusual, good but not very spicy Tastes like white onion… Sharp, not spicy – a little nutty Strong taste Roasted Still slightly sweet, but little flavor or spice Smooth, mild Same as Music, mild
