Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 20 minutes


  • 6 bulbs garlic
  • Olive oil


  • Separate the garlic bulbs into cloves. With the side of a large knife, smash the cloves gently in order to make them easier to peel and to release some of the juices.
  • Peel the cloves and place into your slow cooker (1.5 litre) and splash with olive oil to coat. Stir the olive oil through to ensure all cloves are coated.
  • Cook on high for 1 hour, stir, then turn to low for 1 hour.
  • With a potato masher, mash the cloves down until they are well mixed with no large pieces.
  • The flavour is incredibly intense and far less will be needed than if you were to use standard minced garlic, and has a much sweeter flavour.
  • Freeze in portion sizes in an ice cube tray or small plastic containers for ease of use.
  • This recipe can be adapted to do smaller or larger amounts as preferred, with the only adjustment being the volume of olive oil used.

  1. What a magnificent idea. I love garlic and use it prodigiously in most recipes. I cant wait to do this and try it in recipes…..

  2. Very happy with the outcome, with 8 very full ice cubes worth from 5 bulbs. I used a garlic crusher and found this made the prep easier – no need to peel each clove. Cant wait to try this in a recipe.

  3. Great outcome. 8 full ice cubes from 5 bulbs. I made the prep easier by using a garlic mincer, which also really bought out the juices. I think the neighbors can smell it every time I open my shed freezer. Cant wait to use the in some soups and other meal recipes.
