Here I have a good tip for the garlic-lovers.
I made garlic-in-honey. It's a sort of fermented. Has a very special taste!
How I made it: filled a small glass jar with cloves of garlic. Covered them all with a fresh, local, honey. I had to wiggle the jar a little, so the honey could fill all gaps between the garlic cloves. Filled with honey to the top. Covered with the screw-on lid, but not tight, the bubbles have to go out. Because of those bubbles, which take some honey with them, put it on a saucer. Keep somewhere in the kitchen (normal room-temperature). Wait for some weeks before use.

Sorry, I forgot where I found the recipe. It was somewhere on Facebook.

Hi Inge, that sounds awesome. I have some too in my pantry – I tend to use it as soon as I feel that I'm coming down with something cold/flu-ey and every time it's not developed into something worse, which could be a coincidence but I like to think otherwise. Both honey and garlic rock in the medicinal sense, but often it's also a great way to eat raw garlic, so it's a win-win! Thanks for sharing (and reminding me I need to make a new batch) :)

So important to keep the lid loose or use a fermentation lid when doing this.  I'm making a wild garlic bulbil elixir with vodka and honey and couldn't figure out why the bottom of the cabinet was sticky. Loosened the lid and it came pouring over the edge of the jar.  Replaced it with a fermentation lid and feel extremely lucky the jar didn't crack.  I will say that judging from the strength of what spilled over the edges, the elixir will be potent. Potent enough that I may end up diluting it when finished.  Now I'm itching to try garlic honey.  
 
What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
