#Handmade - DIY stuff with garlic

The other day I had to make use of a bunch of garlic and came upon a recipe for garlic paste.
You can adjust the amount to your liking, I used about 5 pieces of garlic and had only Cilantro, but it worked.

500g garlic
100g parsley
100g chives
100g sea salt

peel garlic, wash the herbs, let them dry a bit
put all together in mixer, fill in clean jars and keep in a dry, cool, dark place (mine's in the fridge)
But if you have a pantry that fits the above, will work as well.
Paste lasts for approx. a year

What I used it for

Garlic butter
Just add the paste to some butter and mix well

For spicing Veggies

For homemade salad dressing

Just use half a tsp of the paste, add about 6 tbsp of water, apple cider vinegar and about 4 tbsp of olive oil,
salt and pepper - adjust to your liking.

A healthy alternative to the ready made bags. Just check the ingredient list of the bags:
Sugar, Flavor enhancer, Lactose, potato starch, palm oil, more cheat flavours, ...
