What to do with all that Garlic?

Garlic in Olive Oil

I find that here in Europe my garlic tends to go off really quickly.
Within a week of buying them they tend to be spongy and not very nice.
If you have the same problem, then here is a solution you may want to consider.

What I do is take all of my fresh garlic, peel and place in my food processor.
I whiz briefly and then add some olive oil and whiz again to combine the ingredients.

Then I fill the garlic into a glass container, pour a little extra olive oil over the stop and stir.

Store in the fridge.

For cooking I gauge about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon for a clove of fresh garlic.

Keeps good for quite a while.
Be sure to keep the garlic immersed in the olive oil, otherwise it can go moldy.

See you soon.

  1. Why didn't I think of that! I always realize that my garlic has gone off just at the moment I need to use it.
    Rich taken kids and dogs up high to find some cooler fresh air so I'm off to the kitchen to mince.....

    1. Hi Emma,
      In S.A. you can almost only buy garlic this way - I remember wondering to myself where I would go to find a couple of cloves of garlic, but it turned out to be really handy. Firstly it is already chopped so no smelly fingers (although I don't have a problem with garlic at all - there can never be enough garlic is my way of thinking :)), and secondly it is good for a really long time.
      Enjoy :)
      Another scorcher today - keep cool!
