Garlic is available year round, but its peak season is during spring and summer. While garlic is botanically classed as a vegetable, being the bulb of one of the onion family, it is most often used, in the same way as a spice or herb, to contribute its flavour to other ingredients. It is used in most of the world's cuisines and is especially associated with Mediterranean and Asian cooking. To Prepare: The best way to chop garlic is to chop the cloves with a little salt, which will help break down and soften the garlic. A garlic crusher may also be used. To Store: Keep garlic refrigerated.
