A friend of mine introduced me to the nifty site Herb Geek. Jessica Morgan offers this concoction as part of her Back-to-School Immune Tips. There are numerous health benefits in eating both garlic and raw honey. Over time, as the garlic infuses with the raw honey it loses it’s sharp edge and becomes sweet and candy-like. Seems like a lovely gift for a health conscious friend, a child’s teacher or a food lover. I’m already imagining crushing the candied garlic for salad dressings, marinades, serving whole with roasted vegetables & meats, offering as part of a cheese plate and eating straight-up at the first sign of a cold or sore throat.
- Depending on how many jars you are making that will determine how much honey and garlic you need. I used the mini 4 oz. Ball jars. Fill each jar with the garlic cloves and pour in honey to cover. The garlic may infuse at room temperature or you may keep your jars in the fridge.
