Garlic Paste

I recently bought a really large bag of peeled garlic from Costco and then saw that it was soon about to expire so I made some garlic paste. It's really easy to make and MAKES COOKING EASIER. So every time you need to add garlic and Olive Oil to someone you just walk over to your freezer and scoop and spoonful out. This is great for making garlic bread too. The consistence to perfect.

Here's how to make it:
1. Clean the garlic, then peel it by removing skin. I bought a large bag of peeled garlic from Costco so I didn't need to peel and clean it. You can do the same.
2. Using a food processor, insert the grading blade. Add as many garlic cloves as you like or will fit.
3. Remove the shredded garlic from the food processor and place in a bowl.
4. Switch the blade to the long blade, shown in the photo and add the garlic back to the food processor.
5. Pour enough olive oil to create a creamy texture. Process this for several seconds until all of the garlic is thoroughly blended into the oil.

6. Scrape the garlic mixture into small freezer containers, label and date them.

This can be used as needed and will remain soft enough to portion out with a spoon when it is time to use for cooking.

I think it's kinda funny that my one of my new favorite things involves that word "sugar". I just can't seem to stay away from that word. But why try, right? If you haven't tried one of these fabulous lip treatment sticks, please do so. You'll love it.
 You can pick one up at Sephora for about $22.
