|Garlic bulb and cloves|
The cloves are the part used in cooking. The papery skin needs to be removed first and the root ends sliced off. If you are concerned about the pungent nature of garlic, cut the cloves in half, removing any green shoots from the middle and rinsing the garlic in water before preparing it for your dish.
Ways to use garlic:
- Use granulated or powdered garlic for a long lasted easy to use form of garlic. This works well in sauces, soups or in rubs and marinades.
- Add minced or pressed fresh garlic directly to cooking dishes. Great for stir fry, sauces, etc.
- Roast whole garlic.
- Some stores carry oils infused with garlic. Check the labels to make sure the oil is olive or grapeseed oil and no additional sugars or fats are added.
