To Freeze Pureed Garlic and Oil
Place the garlic cloves into a blender or food processor.
Pulse the food processor several times to chop the garlic.
Add some of the olive oil and blend to puree the garlic with the oil. Add more or less oil to your liking.
Spoon the garlic puree into small ice cube trays and place in the freezer until frozen, about 2 hours.
Once frozen, release the cubes from the tray, place in a freezer bag, and freeze for up to 6 months.
