A quick spontaneous 'recipe' from a newbie
Cooked pasta, any kind.
Minced garlic.

Mixed together. So good. Though I guess shredded garlic would also work?

I just had it for breakfast. Probably been done before, but not in this place. XD After I ate it though, I thought I could add some fetta cheese to it... but I couldn't be bothered to slice it. I'm positive it's been done before. *shrugs* Oh well.

Hi. Garlic is awesome. <3

Grating Garlic
Has anyone ever tried to grate a lot of garlic? It seems like it'd be faster than using my hand held garlic press but I'm wondering if it'll work differently. Does it produce a lot of juice like ginger?

I just thought I'd ask here before going and getting a grater ^__^

Favorite garlic recipes
It sure seems like we need to liven it up in here a bit and I am alwyas looking for new garlic recipes. Of late I have been enjoying pickled garlic and am wondering about candied garlic? How crazy does that sound? What about a dried, snacky, roasted savory type? Any garlic soup ideas? In the meantime I'm making my alltime favorie Forty clove garlic roasted chicken for dinner tonight. Just cram the cavity full with garlic cloves, salt and pepper then roast with itty bitty red potatos. I serve it with a blu-cheese beet salad, french bread and fresh pea pods.

Hi, I'm Dave and I'm an organic gardener. I have five huge gardens and I grow a wide variety of veggies, herbs, and garlic. I've been gardening for about six years and two years ago I decided to focus on garlic. Three weeks ago myself and two friends planted almost ten thousand cloves of garlic. My goal is to be able to sell all natural garlic and hopefully make a little money. I might end up with a great little business...or I might end up with a couple thousand pounds of garlic that nobody wants! Time will tell.

Koreans and Garlic
I was in Korea for almost a year, and apparently Koreans use garlic just about every time they cook. Perhaps I'm numb to it, but I could rarely taste it! The only time I tasted garlic was when I was eating it raw with Sam Gyeob Sal. Of course, my preference is raw garlic anyway :D

a gift to myself. . .
We spent Christmas in Maryland, and we made a little trip to Baltimore's Inner Harbor. There is a pottery shop there called As the Wheel Turns, and it is run by the potter himself. He was having an after-Christmas 50% off sale, and I found a little garlic pot for myself! It was beautifully thrown and glazed, and I couldn't resist the price. I would recommend this shop to anyone headed to Baltimore. I brought my little garlic pot home to Texas and promptly filled it up. It's short and squat and round, and has holes in the side so the garlic bulbs can get air and not sprout so readily. Of course, there were many other wonderful things in the shop, but garlic lover I am, I was drawn to this item especially :)

health benefits of garlic
I haven't read all the entries in this community so I don't know if someone already mentioned the infection-fighting ability of garlic. It can be used as a mild antibiotic. About 6 fresh cloves a day will do it, and you might want to mix them in with a meal to counter the sharp stinging quality. Garlic can also fight off feminine infections.
It also is supposed to help diabetics with various symptoms they suffer.
My grandma takes it everyday and pretty much has her whole life. That's part of the reason she's lived so long despite being sickly in many ways.

Garlic-Mustard Relish
I asked a couple days ago about how to preserve a lot of crushed garlic. Well, I was looking for a snack and decided on carrots dipped in mustard. Then I decided to drop a couple fingerfulls of the crushed garlic into the mustard. It's delicious, and while I was eating it I had the idea to just put all the garlic into all the mustard. Well, that answers my question about how to preserve the garlic. Six heads of my favorite garlic made one cup crushed. For an eight ounce jar of yellow mustard, I would want to add three cups of the garlic for a heavy consistency. Eighteen heads of garlic, crushed and dumped into yellow mustard. That's what I have to look forward to. :-)

leaviong garlic in the head gives it an opportunity to spoil. just a few days later the greens in the center will be splitting away, and within a week they'll be pushing out the bottom of the head. refridgeration is one way to slow this down, but i felt like stopping it altogether.

so, when i got home i peeled all my cloves and let them soak for awhile. then i poured the water off and crushed them all down and stored the mince in little tupperwares in the fridge.

i'm just wondering, how long will the garlic keep fresh like that? should i add vinegar or something to it?

My first post
Hi there!
My name's Ozzy, I'm a German living in the UK and I like garlic. ;o) I followed the link from my interests and found this community.

Below is the recipe for my garlic dip of doom, or dippadoom for short. The recipe is enough for a party of 6 or so people, simply multiply the ingredients for more. The amount of garlic is mild but you can obviously add as much as you like. ;o)

If you do like it, please enter
in your LJ interests, I'd like to start a little meme :o)

Here's the recipe, enjoy.

Ozzy's Dippadoom™
It's difficult to write down as I don't measure the ingredients. Anyhow, the base ingredients are:

1 large tub of Fromage Frais (Quark)
1 medium tub of Greek Yoghurt
3+ gloves of fresh garlic (or to taste)
1 bunch of chives
Salt, pepper, mustard to taste

You should ideally make this the evening before.

Mix the fromage frais and the yoghurt in a bowl, finely chop the garlic and the chives, mix thoroughly, season with salt, pepper, mustard and whatever you find in your cupboard.

- Use parsley instead of chives, or both, any fresh herb will do

- Replace the mustard with a generous helping of ground paprika
