Garlic To Go

Separate and peel cloves from about 10-20 garlic heads and whirr up in your blender
We all know that raw garlic can't be beat for antibiotic action (as a non-medical person that is what I am understanding from what I read) --it's the allicin.

 I stopped taking a particular 'superior' brand of garlic tablet because it contained silicon dioxide (sand) that has been suggested to contribute to "chronic fatigue syndrome". I ramped up my use of raw garlic.

There are, however, circumstances (lots of them) when I really don't have the luxury of time needed to peel and chop garlic. So, I am doing what Dr. Ben Kim describes his mother doing: I simply peel cloves of entire garlic bulbs, dump them into my Vita-mix canister, let it rip until they are finely chopped, nearly liquified, and then I put them into small glass jars. I make at least two jars: one for the fridge and one for the freezer. When I begin to run out of garlic in the fridge, I transfer the frozen garlic from the freezer into the fridge to thaw (takes about two days). Thanks Dr. Kim's Mother!

  1. Cynthia - I'm reving up the vitamix pronto and just bought a nice big bag of garlic - why didn't I think of that? Thanks so much for the tip!

  2. Dr. Kim is the bomb-- he often uses his Mom's foodie wisdom! Do you eat raw garlic every day Berry Blue Toes?
