    The trouble with garlic?

    The first time I roasted a whole head of garlic, I squeezed it out to make
    garlic bread that I consumed. Delicious as it was, it landed me in the
    hospital with pancreatitus hours later. I wasn't allowed to eat for a week.
    Almost died back in 2005.

    The store bought jar of minced garlic in oil made me break out with acne
    almost instantly.

    I'm OK with the garlic powder or the dry minced garlic.

    I've used garlic cloves sparingly since my hospital stay.

    You all are probably OK with 40 garlic clove chicken, etc., etc., right?

    A garlic overdose oozes out of my skin, not just as bad breath!

    And just how do you get rid of garlic breath anyway???

    I've got news for you - it wasn't the garlic. It's the copious amounst of
    alcohol you consume. You have what we call a classic case of denial. See
    Step #1 of the 12 Step Program:

    1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become
    unmanageable.

    Keep going, it really works.

    Never had it, I think I only got 20 in the bird. However the garlic
    shrimp in one of my favourite restauarts seems to be more garlic than
    shrimp.

    I would not know. I consume enough garlic daily to not worry about
    it. I've always though that worrying about garlic breath just showed
    that you had boring friends and family who did not appreciate good
    food. (Well except perhaps the above-mentioned shrimp and the beans
    from that Egyptian restaurant in Ottawa.)

    Might well be worth a try. Now, where to find an ice cream
    machine ....


    Some friends and I once held a potato dinner for someone. He was doing
    his undergrad thesis on the supply and demand of potatoes in Prince
    Edward County and for some reason we found this hilarious.

    IIRC getting potatoes into the dessert was a problem. I think we
    finally cheated a little bit and had a sweet potato pie. It took
    until the main course for him to suddenly realise that there was
    something funny about the menu.

    I can see that a GARLIC meal is now looking feasible.

    Not a problem. On the Iron Chef about a year ago, the one fellow
    sauteed garlic and bananas. The judges thought it unique and pretty
    darn good.

    I have been very pleased with my Salton, model ICM21, ice cream maker. You
    can see an example of that model at:
    http://www.ikitchen.com/saicecrmaic....10=saicecrmaic

    I lost custody of my first one in a divorce settlement; I found another for
    $10 at a local thrift store (St. Vincent DePaul, on Forest Park Blvd. for
    you St. Louisans). It has served me well for a number of years and, now
    that fresh blueberries are inexpensive ($1.49/pint at Aldi), will be
    churning out blueberry ice cream within a day or two.

    I finally gave up on fresh garlic and switched to granulated.
    Fresh just does not agree with me any more. <sigh> Makes me really ill
    while granulated garlic does just fine.

    The exception is roasted fresh garlic. I'm okay with that.

    The best solution to garlic breath and yes, the smell that comes form
    your pores, is to make sure your friends eat as much of it as you do.
    You will all be healthier and the folks that object - you don't want
    to be talking to them anyway.

    Andy,
    Talk to an allergist, dude. You're allergic to garlic.

    Guy I work with has the same problem. Going out to lunch with him is a PITA.
    Mostly it's the salad place in the mall, or the other salad place in the
    mall. Every place else has garlic in just about everything.

    That probably wasn't from the garlic. Garlic is believed to be effective
    in *lessening* inflammation, which is what pancreatitis is.

    Could be the oil rather than the garlic.

    Not much of the essential oils left in those, plus they are heated to
    some extent.

    Why not? The garlic is thoroughly cooked.

    Eat garlic all the time. Eventually the body adjusts how it metabolises
    the sulphur compounds that cause the 'smell'.

    Rub peppermint oil on the soles of your feet. Not the oil you get in
