Garlic Log

This is my favorite kitchen trick. It saves me so much time when I cook. I refuse to use garlic in a jar.  I think it smells like a bunch of chemicals mixed with garlic.  So, I use fresh frozen  garlic that I prepare myself. It does take some time to make, but it is worth every minute.  I keep my logs in my freezer and chop off a chunk when ever a recipe calls for fresh minced garlic.

You can peel 500 garlic cloves, or buy them peeled. I buy peeled garlic in bulk and toss it in my food processor. Once is minced, I place it in my molds and freeze.  After a few hours of freezing, I vacuum seal it and fill my orders. I do keep plenty for me too. I use it often,  and I love making it with my kids even thought they say it smells like stinky garlic in the kitchen.  I tell them it keeps away the witches and evil spirits.  That’s what my dad always says to my mom when she complains of stinky garlic.  It’s an Old Wives Tale.
