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.

Salad in a Pot

Getting  creative!  Regrowing with kitchen veggies.  Here is a pot planted with a celery base after stalks were cut, garlic cloves that had sprouted before being used and seeds of parsley and lettuce.  Last year regrowing a celery in the garden became the best producer in the garden.  I found drying the leaves for late fall and winter a wonderful addition to cooking.  The leaves still smell fresh.    Follow  us on facebook or instagram for updated pics as they fill in during this spring.

 

14 other veggies you can replant from kitchen:

Red Food – Root Chakra

Have you ever gone for your whole garlic and discovered all the cloves are sprouting? Well I have so I started to plant a few cloves indoors while waiting to plant the rest outside.

I used a garlic kitchen counter pot that wasn’t being used and filled it with soil.  Two cloves have been planted.  The other cloves have gone into a bigger container to set until the snow melts!  Planted the evening of Feb 5th and this morning, 3 days later, here is the root growth in following picture.

In the following picture I have used a small rectangular glass dish for the windowsill garlic to grow in water.   I look forward to using the garlic growing inside for fresh green cuttings!
