Quick ingredient for garlic bread or on grilled vegetables

Store in the refrigerator and use within a month. Although, I found that it can be kept in the fridge up to 3 months if stored properly. I make a batch and keep it in the fridge. It's great for instant garlic bread and awesome on grilled vegetables or homemade potato and sweet potato fries. This is one of my favourite on-hand ingredients for a quick and easy dinner. It shortens preparation time considerably during cooking and it keeps well once refrigerated. I personally feel that the flavours improve with time.

Hi, I don’t have any garlic cloves except for garlic in a pot. Would this be ok to use? And if so how much do I need to add. Thanks
