Garlic is a variety of perennial vegetable plant with bulbs that are easily recognizable by their smell and taste. It is commonly used as a condiment in cooking around the world, but it can also be a food in its own right. We can see in one of the following paragraphs that it is even considered as an "alicament" as it is so full of health-promoting powers.
Allium Sativum" garlic is rather easy to grow and grows as a bulb in any environment, reaching 50 to 120 cm. The "head" is consumed, which will be composed of several pods. The leaves turn yellow? This indicates that it is time to harvest.
The time between planting and harvesting varies greatly: between 4 and 9 months depending on the planting period. It is best to harvest garlic in dry, sunny weather.
Did you know that? In France, garlic is harvested at the end of the summer, after having proceeded to "knotting" which makes it possible to finish the maturity of the plant on the ground.
David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to offer you this condiment in its freeze-dried form, which allows you to have Garlic at your disposal at any time while enjoying all its flavours
There are different varieties of garlic:
Did you know that? China is the largest garlic producer. It produces 80% of the world's production.
Used for its nutritional and medicinal values, for 5 millennia, Garlic has its origins in the plains of Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan. It then spread to the Chinese regions before reaching the Mediterranean basin. Herodotus reportedly mentioned that the first social conflict in history was caused by the suppression of the garlic ration usually granted to Egyptian workers in charge of building the Cheops Pyramid.
Its medicinal values were quickly recognized, which is why garlic was prescribed to Greek athletes (because of its vasodilation properties), Roman soldiers in the field, and, according to Virgil, to reapers during the great heat, to give them strength and vigour. In other cultures, it could also be misunderstood (particularly because of its organoleptic power during ingestion, such as digestion). Thus, in 1330, King Alphonse of Castile set up an order indicating that any knight who ingested garlic could not appear at court or exchange with the other knights for a minimum of one month.
It is notably through the Romans that Garlic will be introduced in France, and it will mark each region by its taste and smell which will be associated with the local culinary tradition. But it is in Provence that Garlic has made its letters of nobility.
Alexandre Dumas even says "The air in Provence is impregnated with a garlic scent that makes it very healthy to breathe: it is the main condiment used in bouillabaisse and in the main sauces. We make it, crushed with oil, a kind of mayonnaise that we eat with fish and snails. The lunch of the Provençals of the lower classes often consists of a crust of bread, drizzled with oil and rubbed with garlic.
Alphonse Daudet will praise Garlic for its medicinal benefits, he will say in particular that people who were almost dying were rehabilitated by preparing two or three plates of garlic soup for them.
This plant having been imported into Europe thanks to the Crusaders, and having made it possible to eradicate part of the plague, it was quickly attributed anti-demonic powers.
There are anecdotes in the history of various countries where garlic plays an important role:
Did you know that? In the Mediterranean basin, hanging a braid or a bouquet of garlic in front of your house protects the home from any misfortune.
For thousands of years, garlic has been perceived as a key element in all pharmacopoeias. Homer, Hippocrates, Aristophanes... All of them have mentioned Garlic in their stories as a miraculous food.
Today, it is certainly referred to as an "alicament" (a food with proven medicinal properties). One of the secrets of this miraculous plant lies in one of the molecules it contains: allicin. If this molecule is at the origin of its particular smell, it is also the one that gives it so many powers.
Garlic is especially for
Garlic is a plant that has been consumed for thousands of years throughout the world. It is highly appreciated, especially in France, to the point of becoming an integral part of French culinary traditions. Freeze-dried garlic is appreciated for its long shelf life and ease of use.
Garlic has a taste that is recognizable by all. Ideal to bring a Mediterranean touch to a dish, it is eaten fresh, usually chopped, freeze-dried (powdered) or in pods for marinades or to prick meat. The great talent of this condiment is to sublimate all types of dishes, whether used raw or cooked, while contributing to your overall physical well-being.
Garlic can be used in chopped, whole, shirt, slices, as many possibilities that will allow you to use it in your raw or cooked dishes. It can be cooked rather well as long as it is integrated in a sauce, or a cooking juice.
In its freeze-dried version, you only need to sprinkle the equivalent of half a teaspoon on your preparation to enjoy its full range of aromas.
Want to discover the flavour of my garlic powder? In addition to my recipes on the blog, I have created a 3-course menu where garlic is present and reveals all its aromas.
This traditional French starter is a recipe from the Burgundy region. Chives, parsley, shallots and garlic are blond before being covered with butter ointment. It remains to mix well and stuff the shell of the snails with a piping bag. Bake... excellent with a good white wine or tidy and country bread!
Garlic enhances the taste of seafood risotto. To make a good risotto, simply brown onions in a little white wine and then add Arborio rice. Once the rice is translucent, add broth and watch the cooking. Sauté your seafood in a frying pan with garlic. Add to the cooked rice. You can also spice up the rice with saffron as in paella. In this recipe, freeze-dried garlic replaces minced garlic.
Garlic goes perfectly with chocolate. It develops the aromas. Simply add freeze-dried garlic to your Brownies dough. This recipe can also be made with black garlic. How to store garlic? The garlic heads should be stored at room temperature in a place protected from dry and airy light. We recommend that you store freeze-dried garlic in an airtight container. It will thus retain all its gustatory properties.
