Garlic supposedly has many health properties.

Do you often use this in cooking?

Do you use it fresh, or processed from a jar?

I tend to be allergic to it if not cooked, however I still use it a lot in my recipes. I often put in less for that reason.

I do not know if it really has the health properties it supposedly has, and I just love the smell of it....love garlic bread, and garlic prawns!

Yes, I love it. I use fresh garlic. It keeps for ages so we always have some handy.
I use a lot of garlic in my cooking but I try and make sure it's just a subtle hint of it
by AJ
I love garlic! I use it in almost everything I cook, always fresh.
Yes,and always fresh garlic!! Australian too as I like the flavour as well as preferring to support our own farmers!
I try to use fresh garlic as often as I can. It has a lot of health benefits.

Fresh or in a jar, I love it either way.

I tend to use lots of garlic while cooking. Chopped, minced, crushed, bottled in a paste form, you name it, I use them all
I use it in a lot of my cooking. I prefer fresh to minced because the flavour is more subtle.
Fresh Australian garlic is best!
I use garlic in most of my cooking and even though I would prefer fresh garlic cloves, I use bottled for convenience.
Every meal for me starts with garlic.. Apart from breakfast unless I'm making some kind of baked eggs.. I love it and I eat it raw when I'm sick also with a cheese platter
Yes, I love to use fresh garlic in most of my cooking, almost a must in stir fried veggies and some Cantonese-style steamed seafood.
I only like fresh.
Used it twice this week, it's very good for you.
Keeps the vampires away tooooo.
Love it, I use garlic in all my food, and often chilli...love the Asian influence in cooking ie lemon grass, garlic, ginger, chilli, coriander etc

I love garlic smell, I like to use fresh one.
I use garlic in my daily cooking and i like using only fresh one. It gives a better taste to my food.
Iuse fresh garlic
Yes I use fresh garlics for cooking.
Tend to go bottled cos there is only the two of us and one clove of garlic tends to get a little sad before we can use it all.
We use fresh garlic as the taste is so much better! I try and avoid imported garlic and try to grow enough of my own to last the year. If you have cold symptoms coming on, then eat a few whole cloves of garlic and knock it on the head!
Fresh garlic. Once garlic is bruised it loses some of the health benefits

I adore garlic. Use it in everything. I actually make garlic prawns for lunch at least twice a week. I have a super quick 2 ingredient recipe and I nuke some rice to go with it.
I love garlic. I have used bottled garlic but find the taste lacking. There are bags of peeled garlic available but I have not tried them; they would probably need refrigerating. When I make pesto or hummus I use lots because I like it raw. I do cook with it and try to never run out. Imagine my disappointment when I went to use the last head and it was rotten!
No I never use it.
Not very often
I use garlic most nights in my meals, but I can’t usually find the lovely Australian garlic, where I shop, so I then have to resort to bottled Chinese garlic, which of cause is nowhere near as nice.
AT Last! Aldi had fresh (?) Australian garlic yesterday, when we did our food shopping! I don't think I've ever seen Australian garlic sold in Aldi before, even though I was always looking for it, when we did our weekly food shop there. Wonders will never cease! It's usually from China, Mexico, or some other place!
I think I'll buy more of it, & bottle it in oil so I have it on standby! I used to buy ginger & bottle it into a small jar of sherry, now I buy a big nob of it, put it into a paper bag, & freeze it until I need it for a recipe. It will last for years that way, so it never goes off.

I've never used minced garlic from a jar, I always use fresh. I use it in a lot of recipes, because I like garlic.
Yes preferably fresh although have used garlic paste
Garlic baked in the oven is delicious as is Garlic bread.
I add garlic in every food I eat.Garlic is added in almost all recipes of India.
Sriv, I guess that means you don't eat cereal for breakfast, or sandwiches for lunch?! I've never tasted garlic ice-cream or garlic cheesecake. In fact I can't think of any desserts that have garlic in them. or perhaps you don't like any desserts. I wish I didn't.
by Miro
I only use fresh garlic for cooking and salads. I find chopping it up is great, but putting it through a garlic press really brings out the flavor. When it it bottled, it loses all of its medicinal properties.
Yeah, I use it all the time, but always fresh. I didn't even know there is bottled garlic.
