Why does chopped garlic turn green?
If the garlic is not fully ripe and dry, it can turn green in the presence of sunlight or heat due to the formation of a chlorophyll like compound. This same reaction can happen in the presence of acidic foods like vinegar, onions, lemon juice, etc. or with copper found in some utensils and/or tap water. It is harmless and can be fixed by either letting the garlic mature (at room temperature) or heating it more until the proper color is achieved.

Thanks for the feedback!
My usual answer to this question is: If the garlic is not fully ripe and dry, it can turn green in the presence of sunlight or heat due to the formation of a chlorophyll… like compound. This same reaction can happen in the presence of acidic foods like vinegar, onions, lemon juice, etc. or with copper found in some utensils and/or tap water. It is harmless and can be fixed by either letting the garlic mature (at room temperature) or heating it more until the proper color is achieved. However, the "over time" portion of your question requires more information. Depending upon how long that period of time was, and if the garlic was not in sunlight or exposed to any of the above mentioned items, I would worry that it may be a type of mold. Garlic stored in oil (and not refrigerated) has been associated with rare cases of botulism, so I wouldn't take any chances in that case.

Fruits and vegetables only
Appx. 2 teaspoons, but nothing substitutes well for fresh garlic and the garlic powder flavor can't compete with fresh garlic.
Green boards are typically used for fruit and vegetables. Many restaurants use color coded chopping boards to avoid cross contamination. Certain colored boards are used fo…r specific food items such as red meat, poultry, fruit and veggies. Green boards are typically used for fruit and vegetables. Using different colored boards does no good if they are not washed regularly. ANY board whether wood or plastic, should be washed after every usage.
yes it is but the garlic is not ready and if u do eat it it wont taste as good as if it were not green
The weight of one cup of garlic is 4.8 ounces or 140 grams. The weight of one clove of garlic is 0.11 ounces or 3 grams.
The density of chopped garlic could vary greatly. An estimate is garlic is at least 1 gram / ml based on a peeled clove not floating. Since garlic is mostly water it can be as…sumed to be about 1 gram/ml. 2 TB is 30 ml thus that is at least 30 grams. Undoubtedly chopped is going to much less dense unless it is firmly packed into a measuring spoon.
no it is not because you eat green garlic on garlic bread.
Because the base in vinegar causes the acid in garlic to oxidize.
Garlic contains sulfur compounds that might react with copper to form copper sulfate, a blue or blue-green compound. The amount of copper needed for this reaction is very smal…l and is frequently found in normal water supplies. The other sources of copper might be the butter or lemon juice. The garlic is safe to eat. To prevent this in the future, do not refrigerate garlic and store the bulbs in dry air for 32 days at above 70 F to 80 F before use to prevent formation of the green or blue-green pigments.
Pennies are made, or at least coated, with Copper and that copper can oxidize and turn green. Newer pennies have an alloy metal that is supposed to reduce this chemical action….
Mincing garlic is a very similar process to crushing or chopping garlic, and naturally substitution should be possible in most cases; though store bought, pre-prepared garlic …is generally far more potent than its natural counterpart.
No minced garlic is finely diced garlic. There is a distinction.
Garlic that you peel and chop can be kept in a ziplock for at least a week, but FRESH garlic is best. Chop the garlic JUST before you use it for best results.
It's not bad, but some people get indigestion when there is green. (I prefer when there is no sprout at all on the inside) Sometimes the same clove will have pieces that hav…e green and others that don't.
Chopped garlic is garlic cloves that have been peeled and chopped.
