Radically Natural Recipe: Butter Toasted Garlic Chunks

On the heels of big brother sharing his birthday cake recipe, my second son, Quinn, wanted to share with our readers his current favorite kitchen concoction.  Here to tell you more about it is Quinny, 7:

To make this recipe, you will need a whole bulb of garlic.  You will need good salt (we like the pink stuff) and extra butter (the yellow kind).  I used a mezzaluna rocking knife.  If you don't have a mezzaluna, you can just use a regular chopping knife.

  • Peel the garlic thoroughly.
  • Chop all the cloves up into a quarter of an inch pieces.
  • After you've chopped it up, put the garlic in a frying pan that is hot and has one big, heaping spoonful of butter melted in it.  Dump the nicely chopped garlic in the pan.
  • Add a small spoon (like a teaspoon) of sea salt into the pan.
  • Stir really well, but don't flip the garlic out of the pan.
  • After cooking for two minutes, add some squirts of lemon.
  • Stir for three more minutes.
  • Cook until it looks goldeny brown.
  • When it's done, spoon the garlic into a jar.
  • Enjoy!
