An innovative processing method
Harvested as buds on the summer solstice, our garlic flowers are chopped and put in oil to ferment with a lactic starter. Fermentation lasts two weeks and is followed by a two-month aging period to fully develop flavours.
Developed in collaboration with CBFC Canada and the Food Research and Development Centre of Agriculture Canada, our lactic starter has been specially developed to ferment garlic flowers. The result of many years of research, our process is at the cross-road between modern biotechnologies and an age-old food conservation method, the fermentation of vegetables.
You’ll find more information on fermentation in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.
