in it for you?
aren't the only ones in the know about garlic's powers. Scientists
believe garlic is filled with natural chemicals that can prevent colds and flu
and keep your blood moving. Vinegar is high in flavor and low in fat.
with fresh garlic can be stinky business. A tool called a garlic press will
get you out of chopping, but you have to remove the skin from the clove first.
The skin is not good to eat. To remove the skin, gently crush the clove with
the back of a spoon onto a cutting board. This will loosen the skin so that
you can slip it off. Wash your hands with a little fresh lemon juice to get
rid of that garlic smell!
