National Garlic Day!
April 19th is National Garlic Day!
National Garlic Day promotes the many uses of Garlic. And, there certainly are many uses. It's a vegetable. Its' a herb. It is used in recipes around the world. Garlic has been used medicinally for thousands of years. And, Garlic is believed to ward off evil spirits. About the only negative thing you can say about it, is that it can negatively affect an otherwise romantic evening.
I completely *heart* garlic in everything. Especially roasted in whole form and then smeared onto crusty bread.
To roast my garlic I generally make a aluminum foil pouch like thing, stick in the heads, drench with EVOO, sprinkle with kosher salt and cracked black pepper, sometimes a little oregano if the urge strikes me and roast at 325 for 1 hour.
Pucker up anyway honey!!!! Its time for some garlic infused kisses... :)
