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 purchased quite a few herbal books recommended by BHS before heading over here and many of them have been very helpful. Many of the Filipinos are fond of using herbs up here on the mountains and even grow some in their gardens. I lent a friend three herbal books- Practical Herbalism, Growing 101 Herbs That Heal and The How-To Herb Book. She was so happy to see pictures of the herbs she has in her own garden and that she can finally label each one and learn of its advantage and hopefully put it to proper use. Mountains of thanks to BHS! In Christ, Grace


Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
