“Garlic, often referred to as the “stinking rose,” does seem to have a full bouquet of health benefits. But preparation matters. Research confirms that heating garlic too soon interferes with the health-promoting benefits of allicin.
Cooks take note:
Be sure to allow minced, chopped or crushed garlic to sit for 5 to 10 minutes before heating. If you are inpatient and throw it into that hot olive oil or boiling water too soon, you will deactivate the beneficial enzyme. Patience is definitely a virtue when it comes to preparing this gold nugget!”
