“Here is a great idea for all you garlic lovers that use a lot of garlic in your recipes, with this method you will always have minced garlic when ever you need it, no need to start peeling and chopping cloves for a recipe it's already done and ready for use, in your freezer --- I usually do 30 large heads of garlic at a time so I have enough garlic for a couple of months --- to defrost just pop a frozen garlic cube in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds --- save your plastic trays to use just for the garlic as they will absorb the garlic smell :)”
1/2 cup

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -5 heads garlic heads (use as much garlic as you like)
  • oil (use enough oil just so that the garlic holds together, you will need very little oil)


  1. Separate garlic bulbs into cloves.
  2. Peel off skins on each clove.
  3. On a processor, chop cloves until minced.
  4. Place the minced garlic in a glass bowl.
  5. Add in about 2 tablespoons oil or just enough oil so that the garlic holds together; mix until the minced garlic and oil are completely combined.
  6. Using a spoon divide the minced garlic between each hole in the ice tray, pushing down with the spoon (fill up hole as much as desired).
  7. Place the tray in the freezer until completely frozen, then pop out of the trays into a freezer bag.
  8. Note: this method can be used with any amount of garlic.
