Fermented Garlic Paste
create a creamy paste with only two ingredients to leverage your food
Servings: 1 cup
Cost: £ 2.35
- 230 g garlic (4-5 heads)
- 5 g salt (1 tsp)
Peel the garlic gloves (but them in a bowl or container and shake until separated)
Remove the top part of the garlic gloves
Add the garlic gloves together with the salt into the blender
Blend until smooth
Transfer the paste into a clean jar (try to remove all air bubbles by gently smashing the jar on the counter, use a spatula if necessary)
Cover the paste with a cabbage leave and a small bowl or jar (you could also fill a plastic bag with water). It is important that the surface is fully covered and no air touches the paste.
Put the lid on the jar (but don't screw it on) and keep out of direct sunlight for 2 weeks.
Transfer the jar into the fridge once this time has passed and the paste turned slightly brown.
Food Waste Tip:
Add oil to the garlic scraps to create garlic oil.
