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!

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
