Thank you to Mags for passing this hint along………

After handling garlic, rub your fingers on stainless steel, like your sink, to get rid of the odor.

About those Cloves of Garlic………………….

Most of the benefits of raw garlic come from an enzyme called Allicin. Allicin has anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, antibacterial, and anticancer properties. Allicin also gives garlic its characteristic odor. It is safe to eat a clove of garlic a day after a meal.

Many recipes will ask for a certain measuring amount such as 1 tsp of minced garlic other recipes will state for you to use a certain number of cloves. Generally 1 medium-size clove of Garlic will yield about ¾ teaspoon minced garlic.
