  • I got a question on the trivia game that asked the nutritional components of Garlic. I got it wrong because I know selenium is a mineral and one of the group of 3 answers included Vit B-6. Selinium is not a vitamin, it's a mineral. The other 2 answers were Vit C and Magnesium which are right. So none of the choices were right which is how I answered the question. Can you help explain please.
  • I use fresh garlic, it lasts for ages.
    Eat it it you like it, don't worry about fresh or jarred! Greeks and Roman's didn't have many spices way back then, so of course used a lot of it. Don't worry about "possible" health benefits, no one has come up with any amount that might do anything at all yet, even after test trials. Just enjoy it.
  • I really do not care for garlic and I also am allergic to it. I recall a woman from Italy saying on TV that real Italians do not use garlic in cooking. This was born out one time when at a place I worked for we went to a local Italian cultural center (Santa Maria Goretti). I really was NOT looking forward to it as I had wild thoughts out everything having garlic in it. It DIDN'T. What was odd was even the SALAD had spaghetti in it!
  • I like garlic & usually use the minced garlic in a jar.
    I was a little disappointed that the article didn't mention this form.
  • Garlic is a food I cook with every day!
  • a bulb of garlic a day, keeps not just the dr. away, but everyone else too.. so no germs!
  • I love garlic. My hubby and I but my son don't like it. He say we have eaten so much that it coming out our pores.
    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.
  • We LOVE garlic! Broccoli aglio olio...yum!

    Had shrimp scampi tonight...
  • 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.
