Garlic is touted to be beneficial, particularly raw garlic if a small amount about a tablespoon is ingested daily. A problem is the garlic is very hot and difficult to ingest raw. Also garlic must be crushed and allowed to rest for at least 15 minutes prior to using to get minimum benefit.
Mine is prepared using kefir which I ingest daily. The kefir is similar to cottage cheese and tends to reduce the garlic sting, not completely but it is made tolerable. The garlic is prepared by crushing in a tortilla press to remove the skin. This is by far the best method of removing the garlic skin. Then the cloves are chopped and crushed finely in an OXO chopper. The fine crushed garlic is allowed to rest at least 15 minutes to get maximum benefit. A tablespoon is then mixed with the kefir and ingested daily. Excess chopped garlic is stored in a tight plastic container and stored in the refrigerator. A large garlic bulb stores for about four days. Pictures depict the process.

You ever try soaking in ice water to get heat out ? It works with onions.
Also... The finer you chop it... The hotter it going to be.
If it was to hot for me.... I'd just swallow the whole clove. Rolling on the floor laughing

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Many home chefs mistakenly cook garlic immediately after crushing or chopping it, added Dr. Kraus. To maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy compounds in garlic.
