🌱 Producer Introduction:

About Trepunti.Sicily

The Trepunti farm is surrounded by mountains and the sea, and the highest active volcano in Europe, Mount Etna, can already be seen on the farm. Therefore, the soil on the farm contains a lot of minerals that help crops grow, which is very suitable for fruit growth.

The farmer, Jennifer, is a girl from Hong Kong who is married to a Sicilian farmer. She pays great attention to the food safety and quality of fruits and vegetables. In order to pursue higher quality fruits and vegetables, she began to learn how to cultivate organic fruits and vegetables. Jennifer and his wife, who like Hong Kong very much, opened an online store in Hong Kong in 2019 in order to allow the public in Hong Kong to enjoy the high-quality fruits and vegetables of Sicily, and bring high-quality Sicilian fruits and vegetables to Hong Kong citizens.

🛍 Product Information (Main) (English):

Binomial Name:Allium sativum L.

Chinese Name:蒜頭 | 大蒜

Other Names:Garlic

Product Description:Bulbs of perennial herbs, spherical or oblate, with several layers of gray-white or lavender membranous outer skin, usually with several small bulbs inside. Pungent in taste, warm in nature, warms the spleen and stomach, poisonous. It is mainly used to treat food stagnation, abdominal cold pain, edema and fullness, and has the effect of sterilization and detoxification for ringworm sores and snake and insect bites. Garlic contains a variety of vitamins and trace elements (iron, zinc, copper, magnesium), as well as the amino acid of alliin and the natural enzyme of alliinase. The interaction can produce alliin, which plays an important role in health care. Role. Garlic can also prevent diseases and exercise, and is often hailed as a natural antibiotic by people.

It originated in Uzbekistan in central Asia, and was later introduced to countries such as West Asia and the Mediterranean Sea. Currently, garlic is also grown in Europe. Garlic has a cultivation history of more than 5,000 years, and both ancient Egyptians and ancient Greeks ate garlic for healing and health care. According to ancient records, garlic was introduced into China during the Western Han Dynasty and developed into many varieties throughout China. At present, Sichuan, Xinjiang, Jiangsu, Fujian, Taiwan and other places are mostly planted, and the main producing areas are Shandong and Henan.

Variety:According to the size and color of the garlic cloves, there are: (1) large garlic cloves (larger garlic cloves are suitable for growing garlic, with a spicier taste and higher yield); (2) small garlic cloves (smaller garlic cloves are suitable for cultivating garlic seedlings);
(3) White garlic (lighter taste, lower oil content); (4) Red garlic (more spicy taste, higher oil content, lower yield); (5) Black garlic (white garlic after fermentation Garlic, high concentration of allicin);
(6) Solitary garlic (not divided into cloves, only composed of a single clove, less yield, more pungent, and higher in oil content.)

Supply Season:Garlic seedlings (plants with mature garlic but not bulbs) generally mature from November to March). The bulb part matures later, and is generally excavated when the leaves are withered from April to May. Because garlic will appear dormant after harvesting, it can be stored for nine months if stored properly. Hong Kong is available all year round.

Storage Method:Placed in a dry and ventilated place, too much humidity will accelerate the germination of garlic. No need to refrigerate for storage. In summer, special attention should be paid to moth-eaten problems.

If you buy a head of garlic, if you don’t want to use it all at once, break it open, pull out the stem in the middle, and store it in individual petals. The garlic will not germinate easily and will be more resistant to storage.

#Should Be / Avoided:
Pros: Western medical research indicates that garlic can significantly reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, and improve the ability of anti-coagulation, thereby promoting cardiovascular health.
Taboo: People with yin deficiency and fire are not allowed to eat. Allicin in garlic has a stimulating effect on the stomach, and people with gastrointestinal diseases should not eat it. Chinese medicine believes that garlic is a hot medicine, and excessive consumption will cause fire, resulting in deficiency of liver yin and kidney yin. Excessive consumption of garlic for a long time can damage eyesight. The organic acids and allicin in honey will produce substances that irritate the stomach.

*Edible Compatibility:
Affordable: Lean pork can promote blood circulation, quickly eliminate physical fatigue, and enhance physical fitness. Phase gram: Consumption with western medicine may affect the efficacy of western medicine. Because garlic can temporarily promote liver metabolism, speed up the decomposition rate of drugs, and indirectly affect the concentration of drugs in the blood, resulting in a decrease in drug efficacy. Not suitable for consumption with honey, jujube, bayberry, pheasant, Rehmannia glutinosa, Polygonum multiflorum, etc.

Cooking Skills:Due to its strong smell, garlic is often used as a seasoning. Garlic is generally diced and added to main dishes or thoroughly crushed into minced garlic. Allicin is not naturally present in garlic, and must be produced by the chemical action of alliin and alliinase through the chopping process. After allicin is formed, its potency will decline due to oxidation, so minced garlic should be used as soon as possible. Allicin will decompose quickly when exposed to high heat, so it is recommended to add garlic only when the food is nearly cooked. Allicin is also not resistant to alkaline environments, so garlic is also pickled in vinegar.

Notes:Raw garlic is more irritating to the stomach, so it is recommended not to eat it raw. Germinated garlic will reduce its therapeutic effect. And recent animal studies have found that garlic may help with weight control.
The bad breath caused by eating garlic is derived from propylene sulfide, a volatile sulfide in garlic. Chewing gum or gargling with strong tea usually resolves the problem. If the situation does not improve, you can drink a glass of milk. The chemical reaction between milk and garlic can completely relieve the garlic smell.

Please note that as garlic is transported by air to Hong Kong, it is prone to temperature changes, and there may be opportunities for sprouts, if any, please do not discard them. Maybe his value to you is not what you think.

This is because the garlic heads bought in the general market may be sprinkled with germination inhibitors, but our suppliers do not use such things. You may think that garlic is the same as potatoes, you can’t eat it after sprouting, but in fact, after sprouting, garlic will not produce toxic substances. On the contrary, after garlic sprouting, it will become more nutritious. During germination, plants produce various phytoalexins for self-defense. Most phytoalexins are poisonous to microorganisms and insects, but beneficial to humans. So, except for plants like potatoes that release toxic chemicals when they germinate, eating sprouted garlic will not affect your health. Not only that, the Korean scientist Kim Joong-sun’s team found that the antioxidants contained in garlic will increase significantly after sprouting.

According to Chinese medicine and traditional remedies, it is useful. On the contrary, when garlic sprouts, it will become more nutritious. Plants during germination produce various phytoalexins for self-defense. Most phytoalexins are toxic to microorganisms and insects, but beneficial to humans.

Left sprouts = no food? Garlic with left sprouts is healthier!

Many people have heard that eating raw garlic and black garlic is good for your health, but do you know that even sprouted garlic is a good food with rich nutritional value?

Garlic has always been a very popular ingredient, whether it is eaten alone or made into minced garlic as an ingredient, it is very delicious. The natural antibiotic contained in garlic, allicin (Allicin), has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, and can help reduce cholesterol, blood pressure and the risk of heart disease. Raw garlic and cooked garlic have different effects. Eating raw garlic can improve immunity and reduce the risk of certain cancers, while eating cooked garlic can lower cholesterol and keep blood thin. It can treat cough and bronchitis. effect.

In order to prolong the shelf life, the manufacturer will use a germination inhibitor MH (Maleic hydrazide). Due to its extremely small amount, it can be said to be safe for humans, but it may also cause one of the reasons for human infertility. But also refer to these Nature Medicine journals for information:

Cytotoxic effect of maleic hydrazide

Reduced fertility in rats in some cases.

Carcinogenicity of the herbicide maleic hydrazide (Journal of Nature Medicine)
Carcinogenicity of the Herbicide Maleic Hydrazide

Local “Exceptionally high” incidence of sarcomas9. In other experiments, a total of 260 mg of maleic hydrazide in peanut oil was injected subcutaneously over 65 weeks7, and three of six rats developed three localized sarcomas, one of which was associated with liver cancer. It was concluded that the herbicide was significantly carcinogenic10.

* Precautions
In particular, there are Sicily Island from afar. Some fruits and fruits of Jennifer are acquired directly small farmers. Locals like to be harvested by mature fruits. Organic fruits do not apply pesticides. We will not return and exchange for personal subjective factors (aroma, size, sweetness, etc.). However, if the fruit has a large range of damage/damage, we are willing to make a return/replacement arrangement on the degree of damage to the fruit. Please contact the shop whatsApp/telephone within 24 hours, and send us photos with problem fruit.

Fate of the founder Jennifer and Hong Kong farewell for food; the fate with Sicily was sprouted by food.

In order to find her own life to Italy, she met Sicily's farmer Guido (now became her husband). He and his father had a large and small organic orchard in Sicily, planting dozens of fruits in the garden. Through farming, they establish a complementary community with like -like people. However, it is not easy to live in Sicily for farming. The problems that the orchard needs to face is endless. It is necessary to prevent the thief in the town and handle bureaucratic miscellaneous taxes, but also in the face of the unremarkable season of the weather, and even the problem of agricultural blacks.

Sicily and other parts of Italy are facing the control of the Agricultural Matrix. They use consumers to be opaque to product supply chain, pirated fraud, cutting corners, and exploitation of workers, etc., which has a great impact on local farmers. To ensure that farmers cannot rely on the government alone, they must establish a community between farmers, establish relations with local and foreign customers, shorten the supply chain distance, increase transparency, allow consumers to understand product sources and production processes, or visit the farm. Understand the cultivation of farmers.

Therefore, they are very attentive to bring Sicily's own agricultural products to Hong Kong. I hope that while sharing the agricultural agriculture in Sicily with everyone, everyone can connect everyone with food.

Suggested Eating Method:
Bake, stew, stew, dipping and pickling
