Teeny Tiny Garlic Cloves

Left: garlic bulbs and cloves from the scapes; Right: regular bulb and clove

The top of the mature garlic scape forms a second bulb on top. I am using these little whole cloves in ratatouille and other preparations. They are delicious, but very difficult to peel. Decorticationg chickpeas or almonds is a day at the races compared to this. The ones that stayed wrapped in the refrigerator don't require peeling.
