Good to know

The most famous use of garlic in Greek Cuisine is in tzatziki sauce (yogurt dip) and in Skordalia (Garlic sauce). To crush a garlic clove you can either mash it in a mortar or crush it with a fork. In this case you are advised to place the cloves on a wooden salted surface and then crush the clove with a fork. Salt prevents the sliding of the garlic clove and therefore if it is stable it can be crushed easier.

  • Oils can be flavored with garlic cloves.
  • Garlic powder has a different taste from fresh garlic. If used as a substitute for fresh garlic, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder is equivalent to one clove of garlic.
  • The skin is much like the skin of an onion. Typically it is removed before using in raw or cooked form.
  • According to researches garlic reduces blood pressure (when consumed daily in high portions), lowers the LDL which increases bad cholesterol, boosts the immune system and encourages recovering heart attack victims.
  • Animal studies, and some early research studies in humans, have suggested possible cardiovascular benefits of garlic.
  • Another study had similar results, with garlic supplementation significantly reducing aortic plaque deposits of cholesterol-fed rabbits.
  • More about garlic, its properties and use in medicine can be found in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garlic
