Garlic, as many of us know is a super-food and ingredient all in it's own. Rich in antioxidants, garlic is also super for maintaining heart health and blood pressure. Garlic also has anti-bacterial as well as antiseptic properties.
Providing robust flavor and body to dishes, garlic should be in any home cook's pantry. Always go for fresh garlic for many reasons. First, the taste of fresh garlic is more pronounced and well rounded. Also, buying fresh helps to eliminate additives, preservatives and sodium that is added to ready to eat jars. Buying fresh garlic is also LESS EXPENSIVE than the pre- chopped and peeled versions per capita!
