Storing Fresh Garlic
10 mins (prep 10)
1 ingredients
10 servings
We had a bumper crop of garlic this year and I drove myself nuts trying to find the best way to preserve the flavor all year! I tried roasting it but that didn't work for all recipes. I worried about spoilage and botulism when stored in oil. I read that storing in vinegar gives an acidic flavor to some recipes! Ugh! I came across this method an an agriculture site! Not only was this easy from start to finish it was convenient too! The only real work involved is peeling the garlic but that went fast while watching a show of tv or maybe even visiting with a friend- who can share the job! The system requires an amount of garlic so I used 1 head but use as much garlic as you like. Of course, there is no substitute for the flavor and texture of fresh, raw garlic! I found that this method preserves the flavor best imho. Enjoy!
