  • Simmer on a very low heat
  • you should see tiny bubbles while it cooks. the poaching should be very gentle and slow
  • traditionally the garlic is not supposed to gain any color or browning. i myself tend to wait until its slightly golden, it takes about 1.5h - 2h
  • once ready let cool and when completely chilled transfer the content to a glass container. make sure that the oil covers the garlics and onions. keep refrigerated up to 3 months.
