Hello friends and happy Friday! Summer officially kicked off yesterday! Every summer I try to keep things low key, but they always end up getting busier than planned, mostly with travel! This time next week I will be in San Diego for BlogFest and Idea World Convention along with attending Les Mills Live! I am a WEEE bit excited! If you have any recommendations for where to eat and what to see (in my limited free time) please pass them along!
This week brought me back to reality after a month of different travels and close to 2 weeks off work. I am very grateful for the time to spend with family and wonderful friends!
It is no secret that there are tons of food bloggers in the blogger world. So many of them inspire me to try new things, make new food combos I have never thought of and to get over different fears I have had in the kitchen. I am grateful for each person who has inspired me over the years.
One thing I love to do in the kitchen is find ways to make things easier and more simple, especially with ingredients that I used very often. One of those ingredients is garlic! I LOVE cooking with garlic, but I don’t always love the time it takes to chop up what I need in the moment! Recently I received a huge batch of organic garlic from my CSA! I was really pumped but then realized there was no way I would use it all up before it went bad. Do I decided to make it into garlic cubes and freeze them. Then each time I need garlic I can just grab what I need!
Ratio of 1 cup garlic cloves to 1/8 cup avocado oil
- Avocado oil
- Fresh garlic cloves
- Parchment paper
- Peel garlic cloves and place them in a blender.
- Chop garlic till broken into small pieces.
- Add in the oil and gently pulse just until oil and garlic are combined.
- Pour garlic mixture into a square or rectangular cake pan that is lined with parchment paper, spread evenly.
- Freeze for 1 hour
- Remove the garlic and cut garlic into 1 inch cubes.
- Return to freezer for 30 more min.
- Remove from freezer again and wrap smaller chunks of the garlic in plastic wrap and store in a zipper freezer bag.
- Pop out garlic to use when need. Each square is about 1/2 Tbs or 2 cloves worth.
- Store for up to 4 months.
