Extreme Garlic Sauce (Knoblauchsoßen)


This recipe is a favorite of his family. It makes a great dip when serving bread or as a side to fondue. We warn you though, it is extreme. We recommend that you do not serve this sauce unless everyone plans on eating at least some or if you have any important meetings the next day! Nothing brings a family together quite like stinky garlic breath :)

Because this is a family recipe we are never very exact. The general recipe goes like this:

Equal amounts of Schmand (a heavy sour cream) and plain yogurt
As much garlic as you would like (at least three cloves)
Salt and pepper to taste (we also added other herbs like oregano and basil)

For example, we used 200g Schmand, 200g yogurt, 10 cloves of garlic, and seasoning.

Finely dice the garlic, mix everything together and season. We used a hand mixer to get the garlic really tiny and mixed in.
