Garlic has been used in my family to lower blood pressure and to maintain clean arteries or help remove mild clogging from the arteries. My grandmother used to make a tincture of garlic and called it “garlic essence”.
I thought maybe some of you would give it a try, so here goes the recipe!
Hungarian Garlic Essence Recipe
Take 2/3 pound (or 30 dkg) of peeled garlic and 300 ml of Ethyl Alcohol (96%).
Peel the garlic and press it through a garlic press, then put the resulting ground garlic in a glass container with a strong lid.
Pour the alcohol on top of it, then put aside and let it stand for 10 days, shaking it up a little every day.
On the tenth day you can drain it through a clean cheesecloth and then pour the fluid – the garlic “essence” – in a bottle that has a tight cap.
