I enjoyed the process of brushing away the soil and revealing the papery, buttery-colored skins underneath. We laid all the bulbs on a cookie sheet where they'll remain to dry. With each passing day, they're showing more reddish color. It's as if they're blushing, now that they're exposed to open daylight after eight months of comfortable cover under the soil.
A fragrance of garlicky freshness is permeating every pore and crevice of our apartment. It's a strong scent, but it doesn't bother us. We know these little orbs pack the powerfully pungent nuclei that will ignite months of mouthwatering meals to come. The scent just makes me hungry!
Aren't they beautiful?
