How do you store garlic? site visitor, Trish sends us this question:

“First, I LOVE your show. My question is, how do you store garlic? I bought a little grater now for the garlic, but am not sure how or where to store it. Thanks for your reply!


Trish, we keep our heads of garlic in a bowl right out on the counter. When it’s time to use a clove, We whack it against a cutting board with either the back of the spoon, the bottom of a frying pan or a metal cup bottom and it falls right out of the skin. If you want to keep the clove in tact so you can grate it, peel the skin off instead.
