Green Garlic

I found this at the farmer’s market. The guy behind the table said, “Have you seen our green garlic? It’s our special today and it’s not going to last long.” I asked him if you could use the green stalk portion and he said yes. At home, I dis-assembled the stalk of my green garlic and only used the heart of it like I would a leek. The stalk is basically a small version of a leek except it has a mild garlic flavor instead of a mild onion flavor.
