Garlic is the pungent, flavorful clove that has been a staple in many cuisines for years. It has also been used for medicinal purposes, and is known as having antibacterial properties. Sure, you may need a breath freshener after you eat it, but man, is it delicious! My boys LOVE garlic. We use garlic powder and dried garlic often, but really, there is nothing like the taste of freshly pressed garlic.
I have collected some wonderful garlic recipes in this post, and I hope you will find some new ones that you love! And make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for a great gift idea for cooks and garlic lovers this year.

I love using a garlic press, which can also be used as a ginger press. It's a mincer, chopper, grater, and you can use garlic with or without peel, which I love because I hate peeling garlic! It's just sturdy and constructed well. It feels like an expensive kitchen tool, but it is inexpensive while being very high quality. Best thing, it's dishwasher safe and won't rust. It would make a great gift for anyone who loves to cook or just loves garlic. It's one of the best gifts for cooks this year!
