How to store garlic

I prefer to use ziplock storage bags for garlic because I can lay them flat in the freezer. It’s easy to peel off a chunk of what I need without having to thaw any part of it. Some may prefer not to use plastic storage bags. 

Some of my favorite container options

  • Freezer safe Tupperware
  • Freezer plastic bags
  • Break resistant plastic containers
  • Glass containers
  • Well folded aluminum foil
  • Ice trays
