Great Garlic!

by Carly

February 2010

I was looking for a way to use garlic everyday in my food for all the many health benefits it gives. I found this recipe on the internet and thought it would be a great idea to share! I keep this garlic in my refrigerator and use it every day. It is so fresh and good!

You will need:
1 clean pint-sized glass jar with a tight-fitting lid
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 cup Dried Minced Garlic
Hot Water

Put dried minced garlic into the jar. Add olive oil and then fill the rest of the jar with hot water until about 1 inch from top. Close lid and shake. It will swell and it needs to be stored in the refrigerator. You can use it in recipes (just like those expensive tiny jars of garlic at the grocery store) or use it fresh straight out of the jar. It has a wonderful flavor and adds just the right amount of spiciness!

I have been ordering bulk herbs from the Bulk Herb Store for several years, and I have really enjoyed everything. I will now be adding Jasmine Green Tea to my orders.

Gratefully,

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
