Originating from Asia, garlic is one of the oldest cultivated plants known to man. It is found in almost every cuisine worldwide and is incredibly versatile in the kitchen. Toasted garlic is an amazing addition to most savory dishes and has a nutty flavor. Use 1 teaspoon per 1 pound of meat for seasoning or 1 teaspoon per 4 cups of liquid when adding to soups.
To make a simple garlic butter to use on toast or pizza crust, combine 1 teaspoon toasted garlic to 1/3 cup melted butter. Sprinkle with sea salt to finish.
Garlic is said to help with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
