Have you ever come across a recipe that called for a head of garlic and you only had individual cloves on hand? This happens to me every time. I typically have garlic already busted up, peeled and stored in the freezer. In the past when I've busted up garlic bulbs, I've forgotten to count the cloves. Well today, I remembered to count them out.
From a 2 1/2-inch head or bulb of garlic, I counted 11 garlic cloves. Now you and I both know this is not an exact number, different size heads of garlic will yield a different count. At least, this gives us a good idea where to start the next time we run across a garlic-laden recipe.
