I hate getting that is made up of a gazillion sticky little cloves. Impossible to mince. And I’m not going to throw a bunch in my Cuisinart with some olive oil and keep it in my fridge just to have it rot. Nor an I going to buy jars of overpriced, pre-minced cloves.
So when I found some garlic at the farmers’ market that came four cloves to the head, I was overjoyed that I would not have to swear off garlic.
