Caramelised Garlic Paste
While delicious on its own, try using a dollop in sauces for an instant flavour lift. Spread on toast or crostini, chicken or steak before grilling. Spread on a pastry base for quiche before adding the filling … you get the idea. It will keep in the fridge for up to a month. This isn't a huge jar, but I like to make it in small amounts so that it gets used. If you are big on caramelised onions on everything, you could just go double or go home!
