Today will be a stinky Friday Favorite!
It's about GARLIC... wonderful, aromatic, tastey and stinky garlic!
I enjoy adding different spices to foods, and over the years have discovered a lot of different ones to try. But garlic is an old friend... one of the first ones I met years ago and learned to love.
But... I am not a fancy cook, nor a gourmet... I rarely get the "real" deal and mess with peeling and chopping it up tiny, then sauteing it, etc. Nope, I admit it.. I use the... gasp... dried stuff!! Oh the horrors... ha ha ha .
Before you purists puke, you must know that I've found a fantastic dried garlic, bursting with flavor. We found it the first time at a local fair here in Oregon, and have ordered it online since then from their website, The Spiceman (HERE).
It is so good, I bought the Garlic Lovers Garlic and also the Sensational Garlic and Herbs. Both are delicious and fresh tasting. Here is what they look like:
For economy's sake, I got the medium sizes, filled little shaker spice jars with some, and stashed the rest in the freezer. It really is good, and if you don't like or have time to mess with fresh, this is the next best thing!

My quote for today: "Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce make it Chinese; garlic makes it good." --Alice May Brock
