Townsville's Favourite

Garlic

Each clove packs a punch, offering a spicy, aromatic taste that mellows and sweetens when cooked. Use it to enhance your favourite dishes, from pasta sauces to stir-fries. Try roasting whole cloves for a sweet, caramelised treat, or mince it fresh to add a zing to dressings and marinades. Garlic is a staple in many cuisines, bringing depth and complexity to your meals.

Selecting the best garlic is easy when you know what to look for. Choose bulbs that are firm and plump, with tight, unbroken skin. Avoid garlic with soft spots, sprouting, or any signs of mould. The cloves should feel heavy for their size and be free from any green shoots, which indicate the garlic is past its prime. Fresh garlic will have a strong, pungent smell, a sign of its potency​.

Garlic can be used in countless ways to enhance your dishes. For a simple and delicious addition, roast whole garlic bulbs with olive oil until soft and spreadable. Add minced garlic to sautés, soups, and stews for a burst of flavour. You can also infuse olive oil with garlic for a fragrant cooking oil. For a fresh take, mix chopped garlic into your favourite salad dressings or marinades. Garlic pairs well with herbs like rosemary and thyme, making it a versatile ingredient in both savoury and sweet dishes​​.
