6 cloves garlic large
1 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Working in batches, transfer the soupy mess to a food processor or blender and process until its chopped to a coarse sticky paste. You may freeze the sauce at this stage, as it freezes beautifully. Smear thickly on chicken of fish, let marinate in the refrigerator as long as possible, at least over overnight, before roasting, broiling or BBQing. Basting occasionally during the cooking.
