Garlic oil, using alcohol soaked garlic
So I've read some posts about garlic-oil infusions possibly contaminated with salmonella and/or botulism.
Well this searching was done after I completed making my garlic tincture and I wanted to use the garlic "mash", if you will.
A solution to garlic-oil infusions, and correct me if I'm wrong, is getting the garlic acidic and dry? I don't know about the dry part, but I'm writing to see if anyone can confirm my hunch that garlic soaked in vodka for 3 weeks might be useful in making infused oil.
The process I was thinking about doing was low boiling the oil and garlic til the water evaporates and oil stops bubbling.
