For the Cook, on Halloween: A Necklace of Garlic

I am not really one for dressing up on Halloween. While I admire the creative ingenuity of others who come up with great costumes, I tend to go to parties as the invisible cook. ("What, you didn't see me there? Well, I was invisible...") But here's one small trinket that seems very in keeping with the spirit of Halloween and yet good for the rest of the year too. For those of you who like a little tomato with your garlic, or who are worried about the vampires this weekend, one silver clove of garlic for your neck.

Of course, jewelry isn't really our usual beat here at The Kitchn, but this was too good to pass up. Hang a clove of garlic around your neck as you hover over the stove at the party this weekend, and call it a costume.

This clove of garlic is rendered in solid silver, and has a price to match!
