interesting I have used garlic for years
freeze them first and put them in the airfriar at low heat ( eliminates garlic breath)

Garlic consumption may also reduce the incidence of heart disease, a condition that affects approximately 80 percent of people with diabetes. A 2006 study found that raw garlic might help reduce blood sugar levels, as well as reduce the risk of atherosclerosis.

Garlic is one of a number of herbs and spices that improve our condition and or immune systems for all, not just diabetics, fresh ginger is great too to add flavour and is an anti-inflammatory

Do you have a link to the study, please, @Pura Vida ?

I really do not like garlic.
Someone asked me to dinner and promised steak. When they mentioned buying garlic I said 'not for me' but was ignored. I took one incautious mouthful and almost choked, but could not spit it out. Having swallowed it in a few minutes tears were rolling down my cheeks and my nose was running. He didn't make a good impression.
I use all sorts of herbs and spices, also leek and onion, but never, ever garlic.

Spicy food which is too hot. Nasty people who have no idea on your life journey but feel the need to comment and be cruel.

I love Garlic but Chilli has the same affect on me as Garlic has on you.
