Yield: 1 Servings
The following article was in this morning's Palm Beach Post. I thought I'd pass it along.
GARLIC BUTTER-- Mash garlic cloves and mix into soft butter (about six cloves per stick). Add some chives and parsley, and salt lightly, if desired. Form into logs; wrap in plastic, store in freezer bags and freeze.
Slice as needed. Melt on broiled steaks or hamburgers, mix into fresh cooked vegetables or spread on bread.
GARLIC-FLAVORED CHIPS-- Place a peeled garlic clove in a container with chips and let stand for several hours. Remove garlic before serving.
GARLIC SALT-- Bury three peeled garlic cloves in ½ cup of salt. Add fresh ground black pepper and ground ginger to taste. Let stand for a few days in a screw-top jar. Remove garlic and use the salt as desired.
FROZEN GARLIC-- Chop or mince garlic; wrap tightly before placing in the freezer. To use, grate or break off the amount needed. You can also freeze unpeeled heads or peeled cloves of garlic in airtight containers.
GARLIC PUREE-- Puree peeled garlic cloves with oil in a blender or food processor using two parts oil to one part garlic. Then freeze. The puree will stay soft enough for you to scrape out the amount you need.
GARLIC LIGHT-- For a mild garlic flavor in a salad, rub the inside of your salad bowl with a crushed garlic clove before adding the salad ingredients.
Then discard the clove.
