There is no such thing as too much garlic in anything.
I use good garlic powder (granulated) mostly, but when I use the real
deal I just smash it with the side of the cleaver and rough chop it.
Yup. I thought I useta use a lot of garlic. Then I married Jun. She uses a
LOT of garlic! Now I use about 10 times what I used to.
OK guys, next batch will try one head.
btw, I asked Lucille what she used. She said she uses a molcajete. I
suggested a garlic press. Nope, she won't use anything except that
molcajete my father gave my mother in 1936.
All garlic is not created equal. Most stupidmarket garlic is of the softneck type. (Lots of rows around the center) Hardneck (hard stem in the middle and one row of "toes" around the outside) typically tends to be somewhat stronger.
There are literally hundreds of different types of garlic.
If she put 6 or 8 in and it still was very mild, it's possible that you have elephant garlic, which really isn't
garlic - it's a variant of the leek and usually has very large "toes".
We like hot/strong varieties so I grow German White and German Red. If you would have used 6-8 toes of mine the stew would have been basically un-eatable, and we like garlic which is kinda obvious by the fact that I grow it every year. ;-)
Check around in your area for farmers markets or depending on where you live, there may even be a local garlic farm in your area. It's very simple to grow. If you'd like some to plant this fall, file my email address and shoot me a note around the first of September. I go to a local garlic festival each year to get mine to plant. Here in the NE US you plant just before the weather is going to snap cold, usually in October and harvest in late June or July.
