I just got done eating a single garlic, and I loved it. I know it stinks, and it will stink up my room and/or the house over the night...but it's so good! Anyone else like to pop a garlic now and then?

I love lots of garlic in food (mmmmm garlic breaaaadddd !) , but not just to eat by itself - that's a bit fierce, and very anti-social !

I really love garlic! I put garlic in everything I cook almost. But like JGPH1A says as well, it is a bit fierce to eat it alone. Either you are many who eats ot or you are none Big grin

Have you ever tried that pickled garlic.

The local salsa store carries little jars of it pickled with alternatively jalapano, Habanero, dill and lemon.

Pretty good.

I like a baked garlic glove in olive oil, put it in the oven with about a tblspoon of extra virgin olive oil, in a small baking dish at about 350 for 30 min, or until soft and slightly brown, then spread it on a nice french or portegese piece.

Oven-roasted garlic, as in Galaxy5's recipe, is very different from the raw version, with an inoffensive, almost sweet smell and a mild taste. Very nice indeed.

I just had a delicious bowl of cream of garlic soup at a Basque restaurant. Wonderful stuff.

Those huge elephant garlic are great roasted, but hard to find without going to Gilroy.

A few years ago I had a two or three hour stopover in my home town. I was single at the time and took a flight attendant to my apartment for lunch. I'd made a big batch of salsa fresca very heavy on the garlic. When we got back to the airport we didn't even get aboard before the rest of the crew started reeling from our aroma.

Galaxy5 and PROSA have hit it on the head. Every week I roast a batch of 5-6 bulbs of garlic: Cut the tips of each clove off (leaving the bulb intact) and pour olive oil into each bulb. 350 for 15 minutes or so, until golden brown on the top. Then I cool it for 5-10 minutes and just squeeze out each clove. Then I mash it up with a sharp knife, adding finely chopped basil and multi-color cracked pepper. Work it into a nice paste, and refrigerate it for use in any recipe over the next couple of days, or just spread it on good bread (sesame ficelle works for me) and eat it all in one sitting. Break out the Merlot or Cabernet for that!

Logan22L - that recipe sound fantastic ! I might give that a go.

Down here there is a regional recipe called pate a l'ail, which is basically a cold sauce of pounded basil, LOTS of fresh garlic, and olive oil, served over hot pasta - it is viciously garlicky but mmmmmm gooooodddd !!

I don't, but a former colleague of mine who owned and operated a garlic farm in northern Ontario, said her husband would do this often.

JGPH1A: I love pasta with garlic and oil, so I'll give your recipe a try. I'm assuming the garlic is uncooked (just warmed by the pasta)? One thing about garlic, is that cooking it reduces some of the health benefits, but if you eat it raw, make sure everyone has plenty of wine, so your breath doesn't matter!!!

Logan22L - yes, the garlic is raw. You must use lots and lots of fresh basil too, pounded into a paste then mixed with the garlic and lots of olive oil. The flavour is very strong, but its good.

Surprisingly, garlic is not a commonly used ingredient in Greek "cuisine".

An easy tip for the many bbq lovers:
take some fresh garlic glands (all of it), wrap them in aluminum paper, put them on the side of the fire. (as you would do with potatoes)
Leave them 20-25 minutes and unwrap.

Another:
put some (real) butter at room temperature
mash fresh garlic and mix with the butter, add a pinch of salt
grill some nice bread, cover with the mix while the bread is still warm

Has anyone heard of "The Stinking Rose" ??

It is a garlic restaurant in L.A. Some of the appetizers and main dishes are pure garlic served in different ways. They even have garlic ice cream.

Sounds exactly like pesto minus the parmiggiano and the pine seeds... I prefer the full recipe (always fresh, never the ready-made stuff, of course)!  Big thumbs up

I'm the type of person that takes something already flavored with garlic and add garlic to it because it wasn't garlicky enough. One time I got ahold to some garlic honey mustard that was so pungent (and delicious) that my grandfather, who's sense of smell is not all that great, complained about the smell. One of the best smells in the world is garlic.
