  1. Thank you for sharing your recipes. Easy question- do I cover the chickens while roasting?

  2. What do I do with the garlic after it’s mashed? I’m assuming I mix SOME with chicken but surely not 8 heads.

    • Melissa@StockpilingMoms says:

      I personally combine with all 8 cloves of garlic. Roasting the garlic brings a milder flavor but you can discard what you want.

  3. I want to know, too. What do you do with the garlic after it’s mashed? It doesn’t say!

  4. Do you mean 8 cloves of garlic?

  5. I’m confused. Is it 8 heads or 8 cloves of garlic? That is a huge difference.
