The hack could save you load of time when preparing garlic for cooking...
A mum has shared an incredible hack that will delight garlic lovers anywhere - as it could save you a huge amount of prep time for future cooking.
While many of us like the taste of garlic, the cutting, peeling and crushing of it can something be a bit of a faff.
But one mum from Australia has revealed that she combats this by bulk-buying when it's on sale at the supermarket, puts it all in a food processor, and freezes it in ice cube trays so she has some ready to go.
Posting to Budget Friendly Meals Australia, the mum wrote: "I buy a lot of it then pop it in a food processor and blend until fine then add oil and blend until smooth.
"I pop it into ice cube trays and freeze then pop them out and put into a container or Ziploc.
"I use them in everything but I don't have time to freshly mince some every time. This is just a time saver for those who need it."
The mum also added that her hack ensured the garlic has much better flavour than pre-minced jars from the supermarket.
She added: "Minced jar garlic has nothing on fresh garlic.
"I can't stand the taste of the stuff in the jar."
