I have recently been using a lot of garlic and some of the recipes that I use contain garlic and I usually buy the cloves and I recently was given a recipe for a casserole from a friend and I loved it so much, I have made it quite a few times in the past month or so, and especially with the weather becoming much colder, the casseroles are a good food for me to eat with lots of vegetable content, to keep my immune system good. I decided since I was going to be using a lot of garlic, that I would buy the paste instead of the cloves as it would last so much longer, and I have used this paste in the past and found it to be very good quality and an excellent ...

I am a big fan of garlic in cooking, and fortunately so is my girlfriend! We tend to use fresh garlic whenever we can but there are times when we've either run out or the garlic we've forgotten about that has been sitting in the fridge for weeks has started to sprout. At times like these we are very pleased to have a backup, Garlic Puree! As the name suggests (or rather, tells you in a very direct way) this is product is a puree of garlic, in oil, which can be used in place of fresh garlic. The puree comes in a tube just like the tubes of Tomato Puree you can buy, though this tube is smaller, maybe half the size. This is not a problem ... Read the complete review

Before getting stuck into this review I must point out that this product is not produced for Sainsbury's at all. It is sold in Sainsburys which is actually where I got mine from but it isn't exclusive to them and is stocked in many places! I'm so glad we cleared that up! So why buy it? Well it's squeezy garlic of course and can be used in all the usual recipes you would normally use real garlic in. It's simply a convenient alternative! The Packaging: Oblong box and on two sides of it it's white and bright green in colour and I'm told it is Gia 'Italian For Flavour' Garlic Puree 'In vegetable oil...your daily squeeze' and the weight is ...

This product is great! My garlic crusher got nicked when I was in halls and the replacement I bought fell apart the first time I used it so garlic purée has served me well since then! It's really convenient to use - you just squeeze out as much as you need, like with tomato purée. You don't need a crusher so it saves on money and on washing up. And you don't get garlicky fingers from chopping up the garlic either. It also saves money because one of these packets lasts for ever and, cheap as garlic is, it is much cheaper to buy this than to buy the equivalent quantity of garlic bulbs. Something that I find particularly helpful, because I ... Read the complete review
