This is the exceptionally nutritious embryo found within the grain kernel. It contains oil, so it has a relatively short shelf life. Many cooks store small jars of it in the refrigerator, and use small amounts of it to fortify breads and cereals.

Medicinally, it is believed that garlic can reduce blood pressure and cleanse the blood of excess glucose. It is also said to alleviate flu, sore throats and bronchial congestion.

Garlic Bulb

This type of garlic is preferred for pickling with honey has bulbs with just one clove. These garlic rounds are not a separate variety of garlic but a natural phenomenon whereby a GARLIC BULB does not divide into many cloves. In the sorting of pickled garlic, 20 to 30 kilograms yields only 1 to 2 kilograms of garlic rounds, and therefore, they are expensive.

Grilling Vegetables

Slice the vegetables into good sized 1/4 inch pieces (i.e., slice zucchini, eggplant, peppers lengthwise; mushrooms are best grilled whole; tomatoes and artichoke hearts can be quatered into wedges). Potatoes should be pre-boiled and then sliced. Coat the veggies lightly with oil (and herbs and spices, or a marinade). When the BBQ is ready, place the veggies on a slightly oiled rack and grill a few inches above the coals. Grill each side until it starts to char, about 5 minutes. Serve over rice, with grilled tofu or veggie-burgers... A mediterranean lemon-sesame sauce is traditional over grilled veggies and tastes divine!
