Garlic Terminology - Must Read!

Postby Dr. Otis Lansa on Wed Oct 12, 2005 3:17 pm

If you are specifying the amount of garlic to put in a recipe, make sure you know the difference between
a clove: Image

and a bulb: Image


This is vital to how garlicky your recipe turns out!

Of course, I'll probably chuck a whole bulb in anyways. :mrgreen:

Bless your bulbous soul :mrgreen:

Hmmm, has anyone considered the implications that garlic is particularily high in brimstone?

Actually, I always refer to a bulb as a head. Just to clarify in case anybody else does the same.

And there's also a chopped-vs.-crushed debate; apparently chopping garlic rather than crushing it gives a more delicate flavor. . .

'Course, my position on garlic is just MORE!!!!! :lol:
Who really might actually be back this time . . .

May the Fiori be with you. And may It have Meatballs.

Mmmmm.. can never have too much garlic. It's good for you too.

Three to six cloves per portion is a good amount. Plenty onions as well.

There's an excellent restaurant here in Calgary (Antonio's Garlic Clove) that even has garlic beer and garlic ice cream. Haven't tried the ice cream, but the beer is excellent!

I had to identify wild onions (in the wild) for my Environmental Biology class.

Another environmental science type, I presume?

I'm a Bio major. I prefer environmental to micro, big picture over small. Biology is a raw, visceral science. It bleeds. I recieve the same sense of awe in natural surroundings that made C.S. Lewis believe that there was a God.

...but, er, that has very little to do with garlic.

I won't get into Organic Chemistry then, which likely has more to do with garlic, and my detour to the environmental side of things, but is still far from garlic terminology. :mrgreen:

Any of you eat raw garlic straight up or am I the only one that freaky?

Freaky? Nah, just ethnic. I regularily consume huge amounts of raw garlic with Korean food (ssam), and occasionally with Ukranian friends. Yummy!

Aye, the good Dr. is back! Raw garlic is indeed very tasty...with good bread, too.
