    All cooking devices kill microbes. The hotter and/or longer it's cooked, the more that are killed.
    Microwaves kill things by heating them. Just like a stove does. It just does it faster.
    Multiple studies have been done. Microwaves are better for food than any other cooking method, because it doesn't take as long.
    Nothing is going to happen from 10-20 seconds of warming.

    How long does this actually keep? Also if I pull the garlic out and keep it in the fridge will it last longer? I know Brad has one that’s been going for a while, but they don’t really mention it otherwise. Any intel would be greatly appreciated. Mine is 22 days old, at this point I’ve even added more honey and a splash of ACV

    Wait so the reason we eat Garlic (the taste and smell) is largely the result of its defence mechanism that is supposed to STOP things from eating it? That's kind of metal, humans always seem to eat things we shouldnt... like Chillies that can stop elephants in their tracks we put in sauces and eat with chicken wings lol

  • Gary Vander Giessen

    Hi Brad, I made this recipe a couple of months ago. I used a very good quality Honey and Elephant Garlic, it fermented as described and got a little watery. I have used a small amount of it and I noticed a slightly bitter flavor. Any idea what happened??

    so what about botulism? Does botulism grow in it? Is it dangerous?
    When or why should we add ACV?

    • Favreau-Vachon Félix
      Favreau-Vachon Félix Vor Monat

      Yeah those would work as long as you got a scale to compare and have an accurate reading. Also ive read that botulism cant grow its toxins in honey since its ph is around 3.9 but it can vary. If your solution happens to be above the safe ph just remember that acidifying the aolution won't degrade the toxins alread present (if there are any). Then you can always boil it above 85°c for 5 min but that would kinda cook the produce thus making it mushy and destroy the life inside it.

      so VERY important to test it???? !!! ugh, and how soon?

      And yeah botulism is nasty af

    • Favreau-Vachon Félix
      Favreau-Vachon Félix Vor Monat

      If the ph goes above 4,6 There is risk that botulism will develop since it is an anaerobic environment. ACV is acid so it can bring the ph back down and make it safe. You can get ph test strips online.

    Hey Brad, I know that sometimes garlic turns green when you ferment it. Does that ever happen to you, and if not how do you prevent it?

  • YungTristin
    YungTristin Vor 2 Monate

    With garlic it's like the same thing, like, if somethings eating it it's a self defense mechanism that the garlic has where it will form a thing called allicin. When something is crushing the cell walls, it thinks it's getting eaten or attacked so it starts to make the allicin. And the allicin what's really, really good for you in garlic.
