Default Garlic.

Is anyone passionate about garlic?

I eat it and grow it. I have 5 different types on the go.
I eat it raw roasted sauted minced and I dry it.

Not doing garlic beer though.

I don't grow it, but it goes in a lot of the dishes I make -- but I'm not planning to use it as a homebeer ingredient.

It's one of my favorite spices. I like to soak it in olive oil, roast it in the oven and smear it on toasted baguette slices.

I grew about 40 lbs this past year. I am growing mostly Rocambole, (4 types) and one type of soft neck. So I do love Garlic . This coming year's crop has been in the ground since November. I highly recommend "Growing Great Garlic" for anyone interested in growing Garlic.

At first I was like "What the heck am I going to do with it all!?!". Until I tasted the Hardneck varieties, and that was an amazing turning point in my understanding of the usefulness of Garlic. The flavor is so much better than the Softneck imo, (which a lot of it is grown in China btw). So I expanded my crop this year.

I don't grow it, but I do buy it in bulk (fresh...not the crappy pre-minced or pre-peeled stuff).

Once I learned the art of the garlic paste (fresh garlic smashed and ground into a paste with the aid or some salt), I started putting it in everything. I need to roast some heads today, actually.

I used to be very passionate about it until I had kids and cooking for them is just too hard and they are not fans of the stuff.

Had garlic ice cream at the garlic festival. It was pretty nasty. I have had garlic beer but only beer with garlic in it not made with it.

I wouldn't say I'm passionate about it, but I do use it much more often than the average cook probably does. I am a lover of Italian food, and garlic is of course a very common ingredient there.

Garlic is essential in 90% of my cooking! I am obsessed.
