Welcome to Hudson Clove! 


My store is now open for the season. If you'd like to keep up to date, "like" Hudson Clove on Facebook.



It was a tough season with a 3 day, mid-April blizzard and frozen ground until May! I lost 30% of my garlic this year, but the hard weather didn't stop Chesnok Red from performing (albeit a little smaller than last year)

Garlic scapes are tasty in numerous dishes including stir fry, dips, scape pesto, grilled, soups and with eggs. They are best fresh, but can easily be kept in the fridge for a week or more, while scape pesto can be frozen. This delicacy only comes around once a year, so get your scape on!



Elephant Garlic scapes are great to eat or in floral arrangements.

"Sativum ? Sativum," part of artist Heather Hart's project BarterTown (Trading Post X): Tomorrow-morrow land at the Dumbo Arts Festival was a great success. I was pleased to see so many New Yorkers eat raw garlic! Hands down, they're convinced that locally grown garlic is way better tasting than our average California-grown garlic.


The bundle.
