Thread: I have a lot of garlic

  1. #1
    Pete Guest

    Default I have a lot of garlic

    What should I do with it?

    Suddenly a dozen bulbs are in my kitchen and in this weather they're
    going to sprout and get moldy before I use them all.

    It occurs to me that while I buy garlic every week or so and use it
    constantly, I don't know what to make with simply lots and lots of
    garlic.

    40 Cloves of Garlic Chicken. Sorry, I don't have a specific tried and true
    recipe for it, but you'll find thousands on google.

    I would roast a bunch of bulbs. Great to spread on crusty bread, add to
    smashed potatoes or add to hummus etc.

    Roast about 4 of them and mix the roasted garlic with butter. Freeze in
    serving sizes for nearly instant roasted garlic butter.

    I usually do about 4 bulbs with 4 sticks of butter. Then I quarter the
    mixed up butter and freeze it. As I have a family of four we need nearly a
    whole stick when I make garlic bread. I set one out on the morning or
    defrost in microwave. Spread roasted garlic butter on 2 halves of french
    bread or sourdough and broil. Watch very carefully. Takes forever to
    brown, but once it browns it goes from brown to black fairly quickly.

    By "bulb", do you mean head or clove?

    I'd begin by roasting a head of garlic to smear on a slice of baguette
    and top with brie. Served with salad, it's a nice Sunday supper. I'd
    make spaghetti with clams (heavy on the garlic) later in the week. I
    cook with garlic on an almost daily basis, so using garlic isn't a
    problem for me.... although a dozen heads seems over whelming.

    I've been known to chop up fresh garlic, cover it with oil and
    refrigerate until needed. But what I did recently when I accumulated
    more heads of garlic than I could use quickly was to roast them and
    then store the roasted cloves in the freezer. It worked for me! I
    have used them up entirely since then and they were just fine.

    Good Luck!

    BTW to OP: when you're smooshing out roasted garlic for those potatoes
    or hummus etc, you just pick up the entire head in your hand and
    squeeze it out like you would 1/2 a lemon.

    Great idea! I haven't made garlic bread in a long time.

    bulb = head

    12 cloves? Ha! That's a morning snack!

    I can never be too careful. Some people consider 12 cloves a
    years worth of garlic. LOL

    Dilettante make that 100 clove garlic chicken.

    After mashing a dozen or so
    cloves to smear between the chicken skin and flesh and
    then rub the out side of the salt & peppered chicken with stuff the
    chicken with as many cloves of peeled, trimmed garlic as it can hold.

    When done remove the garlic from inside the bird and reserve for other
    uses. One of which would be to flavor a white sauce to serve with the
    chicken.

    I'm watching this thread. My friends gave me a 36 head braid at
    midwinter, and about half of it's left. The ones I used last night
    were green in the middle, but still tasty.

    My DH's ex grew some that were 4 cloves per head one year. I liked
    those.

    Here is a garlic confit recipe from _The Paris Cookbook_ by Patricia
    Wells.

    Victor

    Les Allobroges's Garlic Confit

    1 cup olive oil, extra-virgin
    4 plump, fresh heads garlic, separated into cloves, but not peeled

    Place garlic in a small saucepan and cover with oil. Cook, uncovered,
    at the barest simmer, over the lowest possible heat, until the garlic is
    soft and a small knife inserted into a clove gets no resistance, 45
    minutes to 1 hour. Don't burn the garlic. Can be served immediately,
    or allowed to cool in the oil. Reheat at serving time. Allow guests to
    pop cloves out of their skin. Oil can be reused.

    Give some away, why waste what you can't use. This week there were mesh
    bags of limes on sale, 2 pounds for $2, pretty small limes, each no bigger
    than a ping pong ball, but very thin skinned and very juicy. I would never
    use all of them so I gave half to my next door neighbor, both husband and
    wife are pretty good boozers, I'm sure they won't waste any. Neither
    garlic or limes are very costly, it would be pure spite work and bitterness
    to let them rot rather than give them to someone who can use them. My
    neighbor grows garlic, onions, and potatoes, we share our crops with each
    other every year, I know I will be more than paid back for my dozen limes.
    Don't let your excess garlic rot, share with your neighbors.

    Odd as it may seem, I've never gotten cloves of garlic grow into
    plants/heads of garlic. Potatoes are weeds. Garlic doesn't thrive.

    OK, you serve it but how? Do they pop it into their mouths? Picking
    up an oil cooked clove to pop also sounds greasy on the hands.
