Bethany H. Lowell, who commented:
“I LOVE GARLIC!!! The last thing my boys (aspiring chefs at ages 12 and 10) and I made was garlic, brown sugar crispy-ish chicken wings. We added a touch of red pepper flakes and white ground pepper for zing! We all enjoy our hard-copy subscription and we thank you for very literally EVERYTHING in each issue!”

Congratulations, Bethany! Watch for an email from the farm.

  2. Marianne Dicob says:

    I added garlic to my beef stew. mmmm delicious.

  3. Deborah Nay says:

    I just wrapped mine in foil with olive oil and baked them. I love garlic. I put scapes in anything i cook.

  4. I use garlic in just about everything!! The last thing I made in my kitchen with garlic would have been ‘garlic butter’ to make garlic bread to go with pasta & meatballs. Butter, fresh pressed garlic, oregano & some basil – mash together with a fork & spread on a loaf of bread & place in over at 350 degrees.

  5. After a large family get-together, we had some hardened butt of roast left in the crock pot with a little bit of drippings. I chopped roast leftovers and added several sticks of celery left from veggie platter. Decided I would throw in the beautiful Italian parsley that decorated the outer edge of the same platter. There was some yellowed, shriveled garlic laying on the cabinet that desperately needed using, that got tossed in the pot too. A small chopped onion completed the pot for now. Cooked all night on low. An hour before lunch, we chopped and steamed leftover carrots from same platter. While they got tender, the large baked potatoes from the party got peeled and cubed and dunked into the fabulously smelling mixture that was simmering in the crock pot. Some pink Himalayan salt and those lucious carrots completed our lunch fare. All organic, of course! It was too yummy for any further discussion. 😉

    White bean chicken chili. Has to have fresh garlic sauted in olive oil!

    I was given grapefruit last month from sunny Arizona and decided to make a grapefruit vinaigrette which included a nice portion of minced garlic. Not being a grapefruit fan, it turned out amazing!

  18. Arlene Beyer says:

    I use Garlic in everything I cook. We grow garlic in our garden. We started a couple years ago as and there is nothing better then fresh garlic. I rub it on my bowl before making a salad. I roast it and squeeze it out onto my homemade bread for garlic bread. I stuffed cloves under the skin of roasted chicken.. my family loves garlic.

    The most recent meal I prepared using garlic was your classic beef stew recipe from the Feb-Mar issue. It was delicious! When my husband walked in the door that night and smelled it cooking he was very happy. With five boys to feed, we go through a lot of everything.

  27. Loni McDonald says:

  30. Victoria Malcolm says:

    I purée equal parts of whole lemon and garlic plus water to make a tonic of sorts for my husband. He is fighting lung cancer and doing really well. Don’t know how much credit to give the “tonic” but it doesn’t hurt!!!

  31. Haley says:

    Bean soup

  32. I live with my daughter and husband now, so we cook together a lot. But baked chicken with garlic and Italian seasoning is my favorite. So easy and I pour the juices over pasts. Love your magazine. Just had to smile at the article “Mom’s World” with Melyssa Williams, Apr/May. I’ll be 70 soon and find myself telling the grandaughters the same thing. And, they do grow up so fast!!

  33. Gerri Leigh says:

    I taught my 15 yr. old son how to make spaghetti sauce from scratch (at his request). Our family loves garlic so we used a lot of it!

  36. MargaretP says:

    Last night. Pizza. Homemade. Minced garlic across the crust before anything else. I use garlic just about every day. Sometimes lunch and dinner. It’s a basic in my kitchen.

  37. Nancy Wald says:

    Sauté large shrimp in coconut oil and lots of oil. When done set aside and sauté assortment of bell pepper, onion,snow pea pods and anything else that you have on hand. Boil linguini and when done coat with pesto. Return shrimp to the pan with vegetable mixture just to reward. Divide noodles, top with shrimp and vegetables. Serve with fresh grated Romano cheese.

  38. Jennie says:

    Home made from scratch spaghetti sauce. Yum.

  39. Deborah King says:

    I made a warming pot of clam chowder

  40. Emo says:

    There were three skillets to scoop from by the time we (finally) ate last Thursday’s baby bok choy with Chinese cabbage, quinoa, & all the peppery “fixins”, partly because I kept finding things to add from the back of the crisper, but mostly because I wanted to save the sizzle of garlic for last, in pan #3. I always burn garlic, so this time I sautéed it last in a separate 6″ mini-pan w chopped crimini, gobs of red onion & … !sesame oil? Nern. I just realized why the whole thing was a ‘wash’. I forgot to add sesame oil. But, hurrah, at least the garlic didn’t burn .

  41. M. says:

    Just yesterday, we enjoyed Spaghetti Aglio e Olio, garlic bread, and garlic grillers. YUM!

  42. Dale Card says:

    I use garlic most everyday. Last night I chopprd some into my beef stew I have to buy the garlic at my grocery store and it is terrible!! to win a free pound of fresh garlic would be awesome

  43. Karen Howard says:

    Hello. The last things I made with garlic was a Roast Beef Dinner & some Speghetti Sauce w/ Ground Beef, Sausage & Veggies for Lasagna & Stuffed Shells for which I freeze for future meals.

  44. Millie Butler says:

    I actually made an Asian rice noodle salad from a Thrive Life kit last night after we finally got home from the 30-mile-away town where I teach K-12 Art, finished feeding horses and giving our four bum lambs their bottles. Needed something easy and fast. And I know the seasoning packet had garlic powder in it, but I added a little extra fresh chopped garlic. Because, GARLIC.

  45. Susanne says:

    I use garlic nearly everyday from chopping it into my salad at lunch to adding it to any maindish at dinner. It’s one of my favorites! Thanks for the generous give-away!

  46. Donna says:

    I throw a little garlic in most things that i cook. The last thing was sauted mushrooms to serve with grilled steak. But my favorite is stir fry of yellow squash, fresh mushrooms, zucchini, colorful bell peppers, basil, when in season or pesto when not, and sundried tomatoes. Yum.

  47. Delila Miller says:

    I love garlic and use a lot. My last thing I used garlic in was GARLIC BREAD.I also use a lot of garlic in soups.
