Here at reCAP, we recently discovered what could possibly be the best life hack for garlic lovers. For those of us that are truly fanatics, in the practice of daily splittin’ heads and peelin’ cloves, a Mason jar has just become our new best friend.
Garlic. For some, it's an obsession. I'm one of those people. I absolutely love the taste of garlic, how it instantly elevates food to a flavor nirvana, how it fills the air with that inviting pungency that says, " Oh, thanks for stopping by...let's sit down and eat and relax and just enjoy this time together. "
Perhaps I'm biased, as garlic is a staple in every Italian household and in numerous dishes, but I genuinely use a lot of garlic and greatly appreciate the many health benefits, including an impressive array of essential vitamins and minerals. It has endless uses and finds its way into the kitchens of cultures all around the world. And, it's definitely not a fad.
"With a history of human use of over 7,000 years, garlic is native to central Asia, and has long been a staple in the Mediterranean region, as well as a frequent seasoning in Asia, Africa, and Europe. It was known to Ancient Egyptians, and has been used both for food flavoring and traditional medicine." (source: wikipedia; garlic)
