GIVEAWAY: “Possibilities, Garlic”

Thank you for dropping by my Raising Jane Journal to participate in my giveaways! We’ve chosen a winner for this giveaway already (see below), but don’t be afraid to leave a comment anyway. I love reading them. And stay tuned for more great MaryJanesFarm giveaways.

In the Apr/May 2019 issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Possibilities” (on newsstands March 5), I led you here to my journal for a chance to win a FREE pound of gourmet garlic seed grown here at MaryJanesFarm. Find out more about my garlic seed here.

For a chance to win, tell me the last thing you created in your kitchen that used garlic in the comments below. I’ll toss your name into a hat and draw a lucky winner sometime mid-May. (My garlic seed is available from September to February, so we’ll ship your garlic after this year’s harvest.)

Stay tuned for more magazine-related giveaways. If you’re not yet a subscriber to my magazine, MaryJanesFarm, subscribe here for $19.95/year.


The winner of our garlic giveaway is …

Bethany H. Lowell, who commented:
“I LOVE GARLIC!!! The last thing my boys (aspiring chefs at ages 12 and 10) and I made was garlic, brown sugar crispy-ish chicken wings. We added a touch of red pepper flakes and white ground pepper for zing! We all enjoy our hard-copy subscription and we thank you for very literally EVERYTHING in each issue!”

Congratulations, Bethany! Watch for an email from the farm.

    Whenever I fry hamburger or ground venison, onions and garlic go in the pan with it. The week before last I made macaroni hotdish and put a few cloves (I use it liberally!) in the hamburger fried up for it. I squished the garlic through a garlic press. We like strong garlic flavor.

  2. Jaci Chambers says:

    I use garlic in just about everything, but one of my favorites, which I just made yesterday to share with friends, was garlic parmesan sourdough. I just toss in 15 grams of chopped garlic and 50 grams shredded parmesan into my favorite sourdough recipe.
