Minced Fresh Garlic
Yield - about 6 Pounds
5 LBS FRESH WHOLE GARLIC TOES (Peeled)
2 CUPS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
LOT- JUICE FROM 2 FRESH LEMONS
LOT KOSHER SALT
6 -7 - 1 LB SCREW TOP ZIPLOC CONTAINERS
Use an electrical hand chopper or other kitchen mixer, fill the chopper with garlic to about 1/2 way. Add 1 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 TSP Lemon Juice and 1/2 TSP Kosher Salt. Mince the garlic into fine pieces but NOT over chop to a paste. Add the minced product to the storage containers and continue to fill as needed.
Store the containers in the
freezer for future use.
When serving, warmed butter can be combined to the garlic and served on a buffet station.
Serve chilled with Warmed French Bread.
Use this garlic in lieu of granulated garlic whenever possible. The Kosher salt is important, it will help grind the garlic, add nutrients and flavor.
BTW, I found the 5 lb container on sale at our local Restaurant Depot for $11. WHAT a DEAL!!
