@GwenfarsGarden I always assume 1 clove was a typo they meant 1 head.
@GwenfarsGarden it's a typo. They mean a head, not a single clove.
@stelepami someone else said that 😀
Honestly, 1 clove...
@GwenfarsGarden I feel like the only exception is recipes where the garlic is raw, like hummus. When I used more than a couple of cloves of garlic for that, I had vampire-repelling breath all day.
@lilly this is indeed my only exception too, for the same reason :)
@GwenfarsGarden what, come on, is the recipe for a single serving for an actual infant?
@Awizardofearthsea still a minimum of 2 cloves ;)
@whami this is brilliant and spot on!
@GwenfarsGarden After moving to France, I realised that you can quite easily find garlic here which has cloves which are twice the size of the ones I used to get in the UK.
I still usually use at least two.
@FrazzledBrynn @InvaderXan um, I've kind written a post on growing garlic https://www.gwenfarsgarden.info/2016/09/spoonie-veg-garlic.html. Garlic is kinda my 'thing' :)
If you like (you are in the UK or EU?), I could send you some cloves to grow.
Garlic is really one of the easiest, and low spoon veg, to grow.
@GwenfarsGarden (I am indeed in the UK)
@InvaderXan the size of garlic in the UK shops is awful, you need at least 3 cloves of those, to equal a proper sized garlic clove.
Luckily, I've been growing all my own for years, and even the smaller ones are bigger than the ones in the shops.
@GwenfarsGarden Of course, I also feel that way about recipes that call for one chile pepper.
@GwenfarsGarden I saw this "single clove of garlic" and thought of you
I occasionally have some that have a couple of cloves stuck together, but never seen a whole bulb stuck together. Wow.
That must be what recipes that say "1 clove of garlic" mean 😂
@GwenfarsGarden the only possible recipe with one clove of garlic is: how to fry one clove of garlic.
