Garlic

Giant GarlicI am a big fan of garlic. I use it in practically all my cooking, whether or not the recipe calls for it.

I don’t buy the insipid horrible little bulbs you see on the Supermarket shelves. They are enough to put people off garlic for life. No, I buy from The Garlic Farm on the Isle of Wight.

There are so many varieties of garlic that it is sometimes impossible to decide which to buy. My own personal favourite is the “Solent Wight” (click on the pic above to see an enlarged view). Fortunately my local garden centre shop stocks most of the types available from The Garlic Farm so I don’t have to go to the Isle of Wight to buy when my stocks are low!

Garlic is a bit like Marmite, you either like it, or you HATE it. Me? I love it, and can’t get enough of it. It’s good for the digestion and your heart, and further more, when you eat it your breath keeps away vampires, zombies and predatory women!

You can even buy Roast Garlic Jam, Roast Garlic Mayonnaise and even Garlic and Herb Popcorn.

I tried to give my cat Dinky some garlic flavoured cat-food, but she just sniffed it, spat at it and fled across the fields sneezing. That’s the trouble with cats, they just don’t appreciate good food.

    I have Marmite on toast almost every morning, and then pickled onions with custard on afterwards . . . . – Keith.

    You can’t have too much garlic. My family and I all love it. But Marmite divides us – me and daughter adore the black stuff while son and mother detest it.

    I love Marmite on roast beef. Great! – Keith.

    Here’s a really nice Marmite sandwich: spread thinly on two slices of toast, add cucumber slices, tomatoes and some chopped shallot.

    I thought everyone liked garlic.

    Not everyone, my cat hates the stuff! – Keith.
