When the kids were little, as “punishment”, we would make them peel a 3 lb bag of garlic. Horrible, I know. Abusive. But hey, we got the garlic cleaned in a hurry! And it really was a family thing as we all sat at the dining room table, chatting while we smashed, peel and chopped. We all shared in the garlic infused fingertips …
Anyways, now that the animals are grown, we ask them nicely to help us. And that’s when Sonny Boy sarcastically pointed out that you can buy garlic already peeled so why didn’t we just buy it that way. Uhhh…BOY, it’s expensive that way! Not really, so we found out at Costco.
Then Hubby was doing his cooking classes and the Chef insisted that everyone STOP buying the garlic with the paper stuff still on and buy the stuff in the container that was already peeled. Said it was fresher. Hrmp, not so sure about THAT but we did buy it that way….
And then we tossed it in the food processor
And then filled two small jars to keep in the fridge AND got out the ice cube trays …
Yup. We freeze cubes of garlic.
And it’s a beautiful thing.
Now. Here’s where Hubby and I disagree. He likes to put olive oil in his. I don’t like it as sometimes it starts to smell a little off and doesn’t keep the nice color …
Me? I just toss the straight garlic in to the jars and the trays with no garnishment. Then it’s PURE HEAVEN in my opinion.
Go ahead and give it a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
