Ooh La La - Ail mariné

Or, marinated garlic, which is what I've been making this afternoon. There it is, it's got to wait in the fridge for a couple of weeks before I can have a taster. The authentic french version is apparently delicious...
I used three fresh garlic bulbs, which didn't go as far as you may think - these are only very little jars.
I added salt, one of the jars has this Smoked Cornish salt, and red wine vinegar.
I also picked for my dinner this evening: our first beetroot of the year, this one is in surpisingly good condition; fennel; first carrots of the year - these are thinnings so they're only little; a courgette that's getting a bit too big. I'm roasting the veggies (although I haven't got any garlic left at home - duh!). I'll shallow fry the courgette so it's a bit of a different texture, I'm removing some of the water from it first, using salt.
And raspberries for pud.

  1. Carrots look pretty good for thinnings and everything else lovely. Hope you had a tasty meal.

    1. They were super-sweet and the lengthways-cut courgette, fried with no oil (is that frying?) was delicious!
