Curing of cloves for your cooking is a science. If you’re going to be able to control the amount of times that they’re used, then you’ll find that your cooking with cloves will be much easier. If you follow these tips, then you should have no problem getting the best results. These instructions will not only show you how to use cloves but will also show you what to do in case of cloves being left over from any other recipes.
The first thing you want to do is get rid of any seeds. There are several ways to do this. One way is to buy seeds that are packed in sterile bags.
Another way is to get seeds from the stalk, which is better than the stem. Most people just stick with the stem, because it can be used as a pinch garnish. I think this is one of the worst things you can do. It’s like having to eat stems or leaves when you are trying to figure out how to use cloves.
When you are using garlic, you have two choices. You can use either the bulb or the leaf. The bulbs are far more flavorful, but there are some people who don’t like the flavor of the leaves. For most people, though, they’ll be fine. Depending on how much you have, you may end up using about half of one clove.
After you’ve picked the clove, you can either cook it or pick and eat it, which is really just about the same thing. To get the most out of this step, you need to make sure that you don’t use too much heat during this time. Cook it at a higher temperature than you would with other cloves, such as one that’s already cooked.
If you’reusing any other herbs, such as Rosemary, parsley, thyme, etc., you’ll just need to rinse them off, and keep them separate from the cloves. This will allow you to reuse the same clove several times in your cooking.
Once you’ve done that, simply put the heat on high. It’s recommended that you put the clove in the pan at a very slow simmer. When you do this, you want to make sure that you are getting the oil to the bottom of the pan. This way, you will keep the heat evenly distributed and you won’t have any clumps.
You will need to add oil to the pan as the water comes up. Put the flame on medium and stir constantly, in order to prevent any clumps from forming. Once the oil comes up to the middle, turn off the heat. Don’t forget to take off the lid!
Now that you’ve gotten rid of the garlic, you will need to get rid of the seeds that are still inside the clove. You can do this by scraping out the core with your finger, if you want to. Take the clove and then rub a little salt over it.
If you don’t want to use salt, you can put the clove in a small bowl of boiling water and heat it. The idea is to try to get all of the water out of the core, and you should see a little water coming out of the cloves. When you get it right, remove the clove from the water and put it in a zip lock bag.
Wrap it in an airtight container, such as a paper towel, and put it in the fridge. Then you can enjoy fresh tasting cloves all week long. Since you have learned how to use cloves, you can use them as a garnish in many different types of dishes, and they won’t break the bank like regular food would.
