It should be firm, unblemished, and without any green sprouts. New California early white garlic can often be found in March, so look for it. New dried garlic can also be used; it is hard to the touch, and the outer skin looks papery and new. Instead of peeling, just smash with a knife to loosen the papers and expose the cloves.
