    I have read on the internet that a good remedy to cure a yeast infection is to put a fresh garlic clove in your vagina, but i also read that it can hurt your vagina and leave sores that will never heal properly. I really need to know if this is true.

    I bought some organic peeled garlic cloves in air tight bags, they were already a few days expired but on sale for $1. I tasted them and they are still good but, I wondered if they can be frozen and if so how it would affect the taste?

    I was about to chop up some garlic when I noticed tiny blisters on the top portion of the garlic cloves. I’ve never seen that before and was wondering if that means that the garlic is not edible. What causes those blisters?

    I watch Food Network and I notice that every single one of the chefs do that when they cook…. Do you HAVE to smack the garlic cloves???

    I bought coconut milk in a can from the Asian store. Can I drink it like a regular drink (water, milk, juice etc), or is it only used for cooking…?
    Will it taste good if I drink it? Is it sweet?

    We are getting in the market Soya paneer (TOBU) prepared from soya milk. Then why not from coconut milk?

    I am wanting to make a cake but it has coconut milk in it and I don’t like coconut.
