A day without garlic is like a day without sunshine---- love it! lol

I buy the minced garlic in a jar and it seems to keep in the refrigerator (forever).

I love garlic but then the smell comes out all my pores and mouth the next day. Is there someway to neutralize that effect?

When I cook any starchy food, which right now is mostly brown rice, I put a clove or two of garlic in. I'm getting better about remembering to take them out before serving, too! LOL I bought a big pack of garlic at half price and though it's already starting to sprout, I just break the sprout off and use it. I could probably just as well leave the sprout on - I used to see wild garlic greens available at the farmer's market. Most garlic is from China, which I don't like, so I am working on planting some of my sprouted garlic and growing my own in my apartment window.

And don't forget - Garlic keeps vampires away :D Always a healthy thing.

Okay - just teasing - but I use garlic in almost every meal. We eat a lot of tofu dishes and garlic is essential to give it flavor.

I take garlic tablets now and then because of their health benefits, I cannot take them for too long or I start smelling. (laughing) We love sauteing garlic with veggies for a stir fry.

great article! i roast 4-6 lg heads of garlic per month at a time, store in fridge to use in cooking as needed. olive oil and crushed red pepper flakes or rosemary in a foil covered shallow pan. 200c for 45 min.
i use it in almost everything. love it!!! i serve it as a spread for fresh baked bread instead of butter with an italian meal and my family goes crazy for it.

I cannot eat garlic either. So whether its good for me or not is (unfortunately) NOT relevant. Still an interesting article.

In regards to discarding sprouting garlic.... I just stick it in the garden. Some grows, and probably some doesn't. We have garlic growing in little corners everywhere around the house. When the blossoms start to dry out, dig them out, let them dry slightly outside (I leave 3 -6 days), cut the stalk and store. We haven't purchased garlic for years.

When you pull the garlic out of the soil, little hard "bulbets" stay in the soil and grow into new plants. Easy, peasey.

We love and use garlic in most of our food. Depending on what it goes in, I either use a garlic press or crush the cloves with the flat side of my chefs knife and then roughly chop it.

I love garlic. It goes into almost all my food. I have to buy a garlic press though and see if I can find some good fresh garlic to cook with. My spices are almost gone and I am going to try and use the real fresh stuff instead.
