Another garlic freak here. I just buy it at the store and have SWMBO do stuff with it. Around here, SWMBO likes to cook, so I mostly stay out of her way and do the dishes.
Could be worse.
In Process: Mango Beer, Homebrewers Pale Ale
Bottled/Kegged:Spicy Light Rye, Rice-adjunct Pale Ale, Mild Bourbon Porter, Roasty Stout, Basic Light Mead, Bourbon County Stout Clone
Up Next: Berlinerweiss, Chocolate Raspberry Ale, and American IPA

Fresh garlic is a staple in our house as well. We use it frequently, but I don't think we're quite as obsessed as some of you guys!

Nope, I like it, but it's like brewing, I'll do a bunch, then nothing for months.

Should you ever get to San Fransisco, hit "The Stinking Rose" near Fisherman's Wharf. Start the meal with garlic bread. A pan of garlic cloves in olive oil, just tender enough to spread on the bread.

I'm a huge fan of garlic-- but never grown it. I have to try that in the garden. I put garlic in just about everything (except beer and wine).

I love it too. SWMBO isn't a huge fan when I sweat the next day and it smells like garlic, but it's worth it.

I grow around 40-50lbs each year in my garden as well! Next to a good beer NOTHING goes better with anything/everything than Garlic! I grill, roast, pickle, dry, etc. We even traveld out to New York state last fall for this: If you love garlic this is an awesome event. I even thought this would tandem with a brew fest very well.

I grew up an Irish kid in Boston. I was 19 and in boot camp before I tasted garlic for the first time. I've been making up for lost time ever since.
I need a better signature.

I buy large tubs of it from Costco, already peeled and ready to go. I throw a bunch into a casserole dish in the oven, drizzled with a little olive oil. I roast it for an hour or so, and then mash it up and mix it with some butter and spread it on a big crusty loaf of bread.

Just like many of the rest of you, it appears on almost everything I cook.
