What are your feelings about this vegetable?

It seems quite versatile to me and I've always liked it, it's just unfortunate how long it will stay on your palate and give you bad breath. Sometimes I'll have a drink after eating something with garlic and realize it interferes with the taste.

It apparently has some significant health benefits and the plant itself has practical uses for adhesive properties among other things.

In mythology it also serves as a vampire repellent, which is kinda neat. We had a few kids who fancied themselves vampires at our school and one day a kid threw garlic at them. They awkwardly explained that their lack of reaction to it wasn't proof that they weren't vampires. This didn't really happen but it would be funny if it all did I think.

Some suggest that it serves as a somewhat effective rabbit and mole repellent as well.

One time I accidentally used more than twice the amount of recommended garlic for a grilled eggplant recipe, and I was the only one willing to eat it. It wasn't that bad really.

I would say I'm a fan of garlic, probably above average enthusiasm for it.

I'm a huge fan of garlic :wub:
Garlic is the antibiotic of nature :wub:

The antibiotics you get from the drugstore are very effective to destroy germs, but the side effect is that they'll also destroy the good bacterias of your intestinal flora :(

Garlic will destroy germs without killing the good bacterias of your intestinal flora :)

When I feel like I'm about to catch a cold, I usually add garlic to my food and I also drink thyme tea with citrus and honey. Then things get better :wub:

About cooking with garlic, aïoli is awesome with vegetables, fish and boiled eggs :wub:

Pesto is nice with pasta :wub:

If it doesn't have garlic in it, it's probably not a very good meal. Or it could at least be better if you put garlic in it.

if garlic has antibiotic characteristics it won't do anything for a cold as antibiotics have no effect on viruses

i won't say whether it helps you feel better or not, but if it does, it's not because of any antibiotic characteristics it may have

garlic only really leaves a bad smell if it is somehow crushed. thinly slice it or dice it with a really sharp knife and it will not only taste less bitter and intense, it also won't have you stink as much.

even mortar & pestle with coarse sea salt is better than a garlic press. unless of course you like the bitter and over-the-top flavour, then knock yourself out.

if you really are worried about garlic smell, maybe you have a date or something, make sure to wash your entire face. brushing your teeth ain't enough. some of the smell sticks to your skin and pores instead of your gum.

finally, if you're an american and you buy that disgusting pre-minced garlic in a glass i will hunt you down and kill you in your sleep~

Haha, nice! I am also a diehard fan of garlic for all the above mentioned reasons, plus the most important one you forgot to mention; it provides a HUGE defense vs cancer. It lowers the probability of you getting it along with other foods such us tomatoes, for example.

Being half Italian, garlic is very appreciated in my cuisine! :>

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.
