Anyone else eat raw garlic?

    Anyone else around here eat raw garlic at the first sign if being sick? What have been your results?

    I've eaten raw garlic for years whenever I wake up and have that sore throat, starting to be congested feeling. Previously when I felt that way, I'd usually get full blown sick. However since raw garlic, I've only been sick twice in about a decade.

    No...but I have a head of elephant garlic I can't wait to roast [​IMG]

    I have fewer colds/flu. etc... since upping my vitamin D levels.

    I save garlic for the kitchen.

    If it helps me health-wise, so much the better.

    It sure does taste good!

    Me too. First time I even found it. I was at the commissary with my GI son. I bought 2 big heads. One for planting and one for eating. I figured if I wanted to ever have it again, I needed to start my own supply. Son is not stationed where I live and he is deploying so I can't have him get me some more now that he is off leave.

    it's easy to grow, and since it's a bulb you can start it indoors like tulips.
