Wow. Sounds intense.

Tip: Instead of going to all the trouble of peeling and mashing garlic, why not use a garlic press? [Smile]

/me reads the recipe...

It's funny you suggest 10 bulbs of garlic, and then "salt and pepper to taste."

Yea, cus you're gonna have any tastebuds left. [Wink]

They seem to get blocked up a little too easily for me. And they are annoying to clean.

My preferred method is to peel them, and then crush them under a fat knife by hitting it with the heel of your hand. Delia reccomends a pestle and mortar, but I don't have one.

If you haven't already done so, try max's method of crushing before you peel the individual cloves. (i.e. Remove the skins after crushing) There is a chemical interaction with the garlic juice and the skin which enhances the garlic flavor. Some prefer it, some do not, so YMMV.

Would they allow you to substitute Guinness for the heavy cream?

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

But I tell you that I am He who lives by the Knife and the Fist. I place the flat blade of my knife upon the clove of garlic, and down upon it I smash my fist. The garlic is crushed; its skin flakes off.

Damn, that sounds good. I might try that. Little strong sounding, but I like garlic (and yes i go brush my teeth to save the world from me).

Try subtituting 3 egg whites for the eggs and 3 Tbsp olive oil for the heavy cream.

edit: or 1/2 cup of Garlic Head BBQ Sauce. [Big Grin]
