Preparing a new Tajine
To prepare a new tajine before cooking; soak overnight in water (the bathtub is a good place). Then fill with water, add same salt and a few bay leaves and a few cardamom pods. Heat over a low gas flame, until boiling to infuse the herbs into the porous terracotta. If your tajine is used regularly this won't need to be redone. Tajines can be used on the barbecue, charcoal or low gas flame but are not recommended for electric cook tops or in the oven.
Used liberally in many dishes, garlic adds flavour to everything from soups to homemade sausages. One passionate Croatian cook says it's hard to imagine a single household in all Croatia without garlic.
