I don’t like highly processed food. It seems the more that companies work with food, the more stuff they put into a product, the more messed up it becomes. The less healthy it is. But—
for a busy working girl it’s hard to be perfect. This has become my major cheat. I will admit fresh garlic is far superior (and tastier) than the stuff that comes chopped up and vacuum sealed in a jar. How much time does it really save? Maybe five minutes, maybe not. It’s just so seductive to twist off the lid, dive in with the spoon and retrieve a heaping helping of garlic. It’s in the pan in less than 10 seconds. Done. On to the next task.
