QOTD Friday the 13th

Do you use all of a head of garlic?

I don't. I use the nice big outer cloves, but once I get to the center and all that's left is the skinny little slivers it's not worth the effort to even peel those so I start over with a new head.

I dont even use fresh garlic. I use the minced kind that comes in the McCormick jar. Smile

maybe try to roast them and just squeeze it out to use on bread or in pasta?

I do use all but the last 1-2 tiniest pieces on the inside of the garlic. I LOOOOOOOVE adding tons of garlic to homemade marinara sauce, Mexican food, actually anything I make that's Greek, Italian, Asian.... mmmmm. I've been wanting to roast garlic with olive oil to spread on bread too! Smile
