Better  do it so before the garlic grows scapes though garlic scapes  are a  treat.

Gert

What are garlic scapes please Gert?

I think it's the green bits that grow in the cloves when garlic is left unused.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

It's the first time I made this,followed the recipe exactly but ended up with a purée instead of whole cloves of garlic. ???
When it finished it's cooking I lined a sieve with butter muslin and carefully strained it.Put the purée in one jar and the garlic oil in another.
Oh well I will just use it by the teaspoonful :D

I have actually run out of this. I love it. Even DH was into using the oil as he thought it had a lovely flavour for fish etc. He is the chief fish cooker in this family. Over 40 years ago I wrecked some fish and now he cooks it, no complaints from me.

It just saves the chopping step girls - perhaps you could call it confit of garlic paste  ;)
