Flavorful Frying Garlic

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I love garlic, and eat it almost every day. Lately I've been lightly frying large cloves in EVOO until they get a light brown crust, seeting them aside to drain a bit, and then munching on the fried cloves much like candy. It helps that one of the local markets has tons of garlic with large cloves.

Now I'm thinking of flavoring the garlic. I tried adding some fennel seeds to the frying oil, and also some corriander seeds, but neither imparted much flavor to the garlic. What spices or herbs might be added to the oil that won't burn and which may impart some flavor, even if subtle, to the cloves?

Usually when I do a stir fry I throw a clove or two of garlic in the oil while waiting for it to get up to temp. When the garlic is GBD I pull it out and munch. I like garlic.

As for something that might stand up to fried cloves, perhaps tarragon or rosemary or lemongrass might have the audacity to flavor the garlic, rather than vice versa.

My friends don't like eating the garlic cloves so when I cook with them I get all of them :smiles: I even munch on raw garlic when I am slicing it.

I'll toss a few cloves into the steamer when steaming veges. They get soft and mellow, and make a nice munch and sometimes are spreadable.

Rosemary would flavor the oil and the oil would then flavor the garlic. Thyme too maybe. My only suggestion is to keep the temp low, pull out the herb before it burns, and then put the garlic in.

So, that's like seasoning the seasoning?
