Besides adding flavour to food and keeping vampires at bay, garlic is also a natural antibiotic, its renowned medicinal properties dating back to the ancient Greeks and, of course, the Egyptians.

Benefits of garlic include: improved blood circulation; strengthened immune systems; anti-septic, anti-fungal, infection and bacteria fighting properties and it contains potassium, calcium and selenium. Of course it’s most effectively eaten raw, but that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. You might try a basil and garlic pesto to realise a delicious use of raw garlic, and remember to share the garlic – it’s all or nothing for couples.
