I keep a little basket of garlic on my kitchen window sill. When I buy tomatoes or avocados, I put those in the basket, too. I glanced at the basket recently and thought it was cute enough to snap a quick picture for Black and White Wednesday. This is the culinary photography event started by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and now overseen by Cinzia of Cindystar. This week Simona of Bricioli is hosting.
By the way, if you ever see tiny bugs on your garlic, try keeping a few dried peppers or a piece of fresh ginger in the basket with them. The ginger will dry out pretty quickly but continue to work to repel the bugs for quite a few weeks. The peppers will work, and be worthy of cooking with, for months. (There are some dried peppers in the basket in the photo, you just can’t see them.)
