Love this! Great to have at hand and tasty too,
Excellent product. I used it in a curry at the weekend. Yes, there is a strong smell of vinegar from the jar (it contains the stuff after all) but it did not come through in my cooking at all. Will always keep this in the fridge going forward
Actually really good garlic, despite some reviews
Actually really good garlic, despite some reviews i gave it a go and i find it great and so easy when cooking as we eat a lot of garlic.
FABULOUS PRODUCT - WOULDN’T BE WITHOUT IT
What’s wrong with you people?! This product is fabulous. I have used it for years as I couldn’t stand the faffing around with cleaning the fresh garlic press and the wastage - as I usually ended up throwing some fresh cloves away as they went crinkly before I could use them all. I always have a jar in the fridge and one in the cupboard. Lasts 3-months in the fridge once opened. Tastes just like fresh; no difference whatsoever. I top up the White Wine Vinegar as I use it. Remove with a fork if you don’t want the liquid (obvious I know, but judging by what I’ve read here the obvious isn’t always obvious to some!) Wouldn’t be without it.
DO NOT BUY
worst product ever its literally garlic in pure vinegar would never use it in my food, threw it away
Truly aweful, with nasty taste and smell
I am used to using fresh garlic and just thought I'd give this a try but was disappointed. The vinegar is far too overpowering. Even after rinsing and drying before frying, the whole meal still tasted of vinegar and only barely tasted of garlic, even though I used double the quantity that I would normally use with fresh.
Useful time saver
I use this all the time but it does taste of vinegar so I put it in a tea strainer and run cold water through it before adding!
Not very good, even for lazy people.
As others have mentioned, the vinegar does not fry off. Used this for the first time in a meal I cook weekly, I fried the garlic with onions for the base of the meal's sauce, but there was a noticably sour tang to the smell and taste of the finished meal. Tried a couple of other meals and had the same result. I can only presume the vinegar remains infused within the garlic so of course it won't all evaporate when frying. This stuff might be OK if you only need a tiny amount in your recipe but if you need half a dozen cloves worth, or more, you won't escape the vinegar.
Lazy, simple gut healthy ingredients
I like adding it to my cooking or making garlic butter or yoghurt with it. I like that it’s only in white vinegar to preserve it, making it natural and healthy for the gut. Tip: you can use of fork to collect less vinegar or simply rinse with a mini sieve or something to get rid of the vinegar if you like, I don’t get the people complaining about the vinegar since it’s simply the preservative for such a product to exist.
I was genuinely shocked by how awful this is. The smell was horrendous, of strong vinegar and I don't know what else. I cooked it believing the vinegar would evaporate, but it didn't. I don't know how something so awful can be produced. It went straight in the bin.
