Forever Garlic Recipe

I bet you're wondering "where is she going with this"?
Well, we use a lot of garlic.
However; if we use it fresh in the bulb, it always goes bad before we use the entire head.
Now, I prepare my fresh garlic like the  below recipe and it last "forever".  Not really, but you know what I mean.
Someone I know used to do this, but they used Olive Oil, I prefer butter.

You will need:
3 heads of garlic (or more, depending on the amount you want to make)
half a stick of butter

 peel garlic and put in a small food processor
I did this in small batches
 empty processed garlic into a bowl you won't mind missing for a while
and a bowl you won't mind smelling like garlic
when this bowl is empty, waiting for me to make more,
I set it aside so no one will use it, cause even clean, it smells of garlic
 for 3 heads of garlic, melt half a stick of butter, and pour over garlic
you could also use olive oil here, I did that before too
 mix well, see the butter.......mmmmmm....
cover and place in fridge
now you have "fresh" garlic anytime you need it


  1. What a great idea! I had wondered before if we could mince our own. Does it last a really long time? I know you said forever, but really?

  2. Hmmmm...good idea. I am just thinking I could put it in a Mason jar (canning jar) so I could store it in the refrigerator door (and not "lose" a bowl")

  3. Thanks for posting this. It's a good idea.

  4. Who would have thought. Such a pretty color.
    I buy mine minced in a little jar in the grocery.

  5. Love this idea - will try it!!!! TFS

  6. Oh my! This sounds so delicious. And what an easy way to make it.

  7. We always use an oil for our pre-minced garlic, usually canola oil as the olive oil will harden up in the fridge. And it is SO convenient, too!

  8. What a great idea, Tonya. Hey, I'm reading blogs again!!!
