Why does garlic need blanching?


Blanchir or blanching in water prevents oxidation and it softens the harsh, pungent smell.

Young garlic has a pale germ, and you only need to blanch three times. 

When the garlic is aged the germ turns green and will taste bitter. It is recommended to remove the shoot and blanch the garlic up to seven times.
