It's good to know it's not just me. I was baffled when my throat first started to ache. All I'd eaten was the garlic, really. I guess I now know better than to gobble it up like that.
It means I got pretty much zero sleep last night as I tossed and turned. My throat was in a lot of pain. I think I need to take a nap now, even though I have a lot I wanted to get done today. I just can't keep my eyes open. Probably better to nap now and then get stuff done in a few hours, vs to sluggishly plod my way through tasks!
I had some Bailey's on ice just now which dulled it down, and I was able to nap for a few hours. So that did help. It's still sore but just a dull ache now. So hopefully by tomorrow it'll be mostly healed, and I'll have learned a valuable lesson .
Garlic hummus is delicious! Roasted garlic is even better, in my humble opinion!
Eating fresh garlic provides a lot of health benefits but you do have to watch for the burn. I use a garlic press when I add fresh garlic to homemade salad dressings. I like to mince fresh garlic and sprinkle on edamame, along with a bit of soy sauce and chili oil.
I have some hummus in my refrigerator now. Maybe I'll add some fresh garlic!
