Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #29. Such an easy, useful and tasty recipe! You'll probably laugh, but all I had on hand to "smash" the garlic cloves was a 4 pound hammer wrapped in a dishcloth - but it worked just fine (lol). I was amazed at how sweet and mild the puree turned out. I have used it in both cooking and in uncooked salad dressings. Was a bit worried at first that it seemed a little runny right after cooking, but sets/thickens up just perfectly on refrigeration. Such a useful staple to have on hand, definitely a keeper.
