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.
