How to bake garlic?
We preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. We cut the head about 1 cm with a sharp knife to expose the teeth. We put it on a sheet lined with aluminum foil (we can pour oil). Bake for about 30 minutes (until the garlic is soft and turns brown). After this time, let it cool down. Roasted garlic is ready to eat. We should not have problems with squeezing the teeth from the shell.
How to preserve the properties of heat-treated garlic?
As a result of cooking, garlic loses bactericidal properties, it only retains antifungal properties. It is also not recommended to fry it, because its therapeutic effect is weakened.
To preserve them during baking, before putting garlic in the oven, we should crush it a bit and let it stand for 10 minutes. Why? Allicin, valuable for health, does not occur naturally. It is formed when the walls of its cells are damaged, due to a combination of alliins and allinases present in garlic.
