IDEAS: For spreading on hot bread, vegetable side dishes ... grilled corn on the cob... shrimp, fish, or steak. Very good on popcorn! How about on baked potatoes or beets? Garlic is good on everything!

Blanch garlic cloves in boiling water for 2 minutes. Pulverize in food processor, blender, spice grinder, or with a mortar and pestle.

NOTE: Make a large quantity of garlic butter and freeze in cubes for later uses.
