A bulbous plant consisting of single head containing smaller bulbs or cloves individually wrapped in papery skins, which are all wrapped tightly together with another layer of dry papery skin, forming the bulb head.
When selecting, choose garlic that is plump and firm with paper-like skins that are tight and intact. Avoid any that are soft or that have begun to shrivel.
Place garlic cloves in the microwave for 15 seconds and the skins should peel off easily.
Allow ½ pound of raw, whole potatoes per person when preparing mashed potatoes.
Prior to boiling, cut potatoes into even pieces to ensure even cooking.
A few drops of vinegar added to the water when boiling potatoes will help maintain their white color.
A container that is built for the purpose of storing garlic cloves or bulbs. Small and most often round in shape with a loosely fitted top, the garlic pot can be placed in a kitchen area on a counter for ease of access.
A kitchen utensil that is used as a "pot" for baking garlic bulbs. Although there are garlic pots that are made specifically to store garlic, some garlic bakers are used as storage devices if constructed of a material such as terracotta that absorbs moisture and if the device has a way to circulate air so mold does not begin to grow on the garlic.
