There are many ways to preserve garlic . Garlic preserved by any method is not a substitute for fresh but It does have it's own advantage . Inside please find how I preserve mine.
What i really like about option 1 & 2 is that while the garlic clove is still frozen you can grate it over your food. It is so powdery in texture it's just wonderful. I do this with ginger too.
You can also freeze the chopped garlic by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil & dollop out pre measured chopped garlic, transfer to the freezer until solidified.
⚠ I must emphasize that preserving garlic in oil is the best way for me. It preserves the flavor & texture of the garlic the best. However, when removed from the freezer it must be used immediately!
Garlic in oil should NEVER be stored in the fridge or at room temp. where it can promote the growth of clostridium botulinum. Take precaution. Another option is to use melted butter or water👌
Once again, this method might not work for everyone. I have been preserving garlic this way for many yrs. I never had any problems.🙏 If hesitant about using oil, use water.😉
