Garlic Infusing in Olive Oil

Red Food for Root Chakra

Here is a  750 ml mason jar with fresh garlic cloves and olive oil set aside to infuse.  No special preparation needed other than to peel cloves and cover with oil.  These cloves can be ready for use as early as 7 days.

Once opened, move to cooler space such as fridge or a cold storage pantry.

Garlic cloves infused in olive oil have a nice flavour and though raw, they are nice to eat.  They can be a nice garnish, eaten as an immune booster or used to prepare other recipes.  My favourite way to use them is to infuse them in a cream cheese.

Garlic is considered one of the healthiest foods on the planet.  Cloves contain the following nutritional values:

  • Vitamin A, C, E, K, B6
  • Thiamin
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Folate
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Betaine
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Zinc
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Selenium

Eating one or two cloves a day can provide living nutrition and be a healthier source of vitamins to supplement ones nutritional plan.  It is one small way to save resources, personally and environmentally.
