Happy March, my friends! March brings a few things, two of which being Daylight Savings and the First Day of Spring (hallmark occasions in my book after the Winter). This month we are focusing on foods that give you energy and keep you healthy! I want to start the month off with garlic because it is an essential part of my cooking for so many reasons. Of course, it adds great flavor to many savory dishes, but more so, it is used around the world as a natural medicine to boost immunity when sick, help with inflammation, can aid in clearer skin, and more. When I’m feeling a cold coming on, I’ll add some fresh garlic into my tea!
Now… let’s talk peeling garlic! There are many different ways, but here is my go to.
1. Place garlic clove on your cutting board
2. Place the flat part of your knife (edge away from you) on top of the clove
3. With the palm of your hand, press down onto the garlic clove
