    I was given a 2kg bag of frozen garlic. I thought this was great at the time, but now im not so sure. Why doesnt frozen garlic taste the same a regular garlic? I have to use about 3 times as much frozen garlic to get the same flavour. Even then it doesnt taste the same. Is there something wrong with the frozen garlic?

    Any ideas or comments?

    Do you know if it's elephant garlic as opposed to hardneck garlic? Maybe the water crystals affected the garlic's sulphur compounds but elephant garlic is not as strong in flavour as hardneck garlic.

    I found this Google result about garlic that might help you to use up your gift!

    Using Frozen Garlic…
    You can use frozen garlic virtually the same way you would use fresh garlic. It is easy to minced, chop, slice, press or puree even when it is frozen. Freezing garlic is really a great solution if you find an amazing deal and want to lock in those cost benefits or you find a crop that is particularly delicious and you want to extend the life of that batch over the long-term. If you grow your own garlic you often end up with a lot more than you can use quickly. You can give away to friends of course, but if you want to keep it for your family freezing is really the best solution. You don't have to thaw the garlic before you use it.
