Garlic storage tip - anyone else know this?
and if so, is it true? I got it from a cooking/kitchen blog - i didn't know if I could post the site address or name here. Can we do that?
I've only read 3 so far. 1 was the bread in the brown sugar one and then one about storing/using coarse salt. And this one on garlic. I thought I'd post and see if we can post a site addr or name so if others wanted to check it out they could. I'm always open for tips that might be useful around the house.
I don't use much garlic - well, I don't cook much at all! maybe I would use more garlic if it wouldn't go bad on me. When I get settled I'll buy a few bulbs again. I've used garlic powder for so many yrs now I probably won't recognize the taste of real garlic!
"A chef once told me that if you break apart the bulb Ã¯Â¿Â½ i.e., separate all the cloves Ã¯Â¿Â½ it will stay fresh much longer than if you keep the bulb intact. I find that it does stay fresher longer!"
