Garlic Apple Jammin'

Have you tried our Garlic Festival Spicy Apple Garlic Jam (Garli Glaze) yet? No?! Well you're missing out. We introduced in a couple years ago at the Gilroy Garlic Festival to much acclaim!!

I love it on pork as a glaze or on the side of lamb, or just dumped on top of cream cheese with crackers, but we have a new recipe for your to try a la Caryl's Kitchen.

Garlicky Soy Salmon Steaks

Mix the Garli Glaze with about an equal amount of soy sauce. Choose about 1 inch thick salmon steaks and baste with glaze. Place under broiler and broil until just done (about 5-7 mins.), basting a couple of times during cooking. Top with remaining glaze & serve. Shown here served with Quinoa Pilaf.. we'll get the recipe up for that soon.

what's cookin?

Well, Indian Summer is here and I am still reeling in the bounty of home grown tomaters, garlic and fresh basil.

Tonight I whipped up some pasta with the "leftovers" from last nights bruschetta feast.

First I cooked up some fresh made fettucine and then I simply tossed it with diced heirloom tomatoes, fresh chopped basil leaves, a liberal sprinkling of Garli Garni, a couple cloves of fresh chopped garlic, a splash of olive oil and about 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar. I mixed it all well with the hot pasta and served it up with a sprinkling of feta cheese crumbles.

Super flavorful!!
