We love garlic in our food. If we make soup, roast a chicken or some other meat or make a sauce. We put garlic in there. Unfortunately I can not store garlic in our Tiny House very well. It always starts sprouting after a week. Therefore I never buy much and often run out.
To solve my problem with this I decided to preserve garlic for quick and easy use and to prevent the garlic from going bad. This way I should never run out anymore. I have seen people mince the garlic and put it in oil, but I often use the cloves, so I just put the cloves (bigger cloves sliced in two) in olive oil. I bought 5 bulbs of garlic, but could only fit 4 bulbs in the glass I chose. The last bulb will be put to good use fresh. Luckily I had 3 helpers. More and also less useful. Those of you with small children will know what I mean. But the pealing went very quickly and was a lot of fun. And the garlic needed for today’s soup was ready for use also. I store the glass with garlic on oil in the refrigerator.
