Among the ingredients most used in Mediterranean cuisine, there is certainly poached garlic. But what exactly does garlic in its skin mean? Used as a flavouring for the realisation of numerous recipes, it is also often simply called ‘dressed’, as it is used to partially neutralise its strong intensity. The characteristic flavour remains unchanged, however, its use means that it does not predominate in the dish, to not affect the other ingredients as well.
Leaving the skin, and using the whole garlic, will preserve all its properties and aromas, without weighing down the dish.
HOW TO COOK POACHED GARLIC AND ITS BENEFITS
Used by the great chefs in the kitchen, the preparation of garlic in its skin is very simple and can also be made at home by all of us.
Equipped with a good knife and a cutting board, first remove the outer skin, cut the head of the garlic; then, you can extract the segments one by one and after exerting a small pressure with the handle of the knife, when you hear a slight creaking, we will have obtained the garlic in its skin.
Each clove of garlic can now be used directly with the peel and placed as it is in the pan to make a tasty sauté and for the creation of tasty recipes.
The garlic thus used is very beneficial and rich in antioxidant properties: in addition to being very rich in phosphorus, iron and calcium, it represents an inexhaustible source of vitamins, such as A, C and B2, which are the real cures for our body. Thanks to the presence of allicin, an irreplaceable flavouring substance, this product can unleash unique aromas and sensations.
The preparation in the skin allows to make the flavour less invasive, in addition to giving it a greater digestibility, and that is why it is widely used.
Among the benefits of raw garlic, we also remember its action in regulating blood pressure and intestinal transit.
