Garlic Farts

Garlic, a thing of beauty if used intelligently.  Raw, it can overpower a dish, burnt is get hard and bitter. Cooking it just right requires plenty of TLC and just the right balance of heat…..but roasted garlic is AMAZING. The intense taste of raw garlic  become far more mild and an almost sweet flavor become dominant.  Well, Mr. Fed Up and Mrs. Fed Up love garlic, especially once its roasted.

We started off with just a few cloves…but now a good garlic based dish has more garlic than you can imagine. But this has led us to a scary truth: garlic creates the worst farts imaginable. Even our sweet roasted garlic has created such noxious gases that leak from our rears a few hours after consumption, that we are considering cutting it our of our diets (or at least limiting the quantity we to a normal amount).  Why does  one  of the best tasting foods  around have such horrible, unexpected, side effects?

    I ate a whole bulb of roasted garlic yesterday and my emissions have the same sweet fragrant smell as my kitchen yesterday. Not a hint of other offending aromas. I think I’d like to eat roasted garlic every day now.

      It is amazing how addictive roasted garlic can get. I love the stuff, but I keep on having to back off a little bit so that I do not smell so badly.
