Usually I find garlic rolling around in the bottom of my refrigerator in the vegetable tray. I’ll pull off a clove and I swear it splits and hides right then and there.
It’s easy enough to grow your own. Plant it pointy side up in dirt. Keep it damp and watch it sprout. 5-6 leaves sprouting lets you know it’s done. It can be grown in the bottom of the vegetable tray but I really don’t recommend that!
Garlic helps keep you healthy, assists in cholesterol processing and helps reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s packed with vitamins.
The leaves and flowers can be eaten, but I haven’t tried those yet.
Not to mention, it is an awesome flavor booster with meat. Beef being my favorite! And fried potatoes wouldn’t be the same without it!
