    why not mince it up & store it as freezer cube Jennie? then substitue 1 cube for a clove.

    What about the smell. surely it will taint the other food in the freezer.

    Put the ice cube tray inside 2 layers of ziplock plastic bags, with a little parsley mint and lemon zest sealed in the outer one, it usually works to neutralise most of the smell!

    That sounds like a good Idea Mrs D

    Thanks alot everyone - great ideas. Might try both the drying and freezing. Will let you know how I get on.

    Had a great idea of planting some, so put two heads in the polytunnel this afternoon. But I have another ten heads that are sprouting. It was a good year for garlic! (Got about another 40 hanging in the shed).

    Did I mention the garlic flavoured choc ices I gave some friends? I'd just thrown some garlic cloves in the freezer (no plastic bag or anything!) and they'd landed near some choc ices. It wasnt until my friends faces turned a strange shade of green whey they were eating them that I realised what had happened!! DDL

    I've tried several kinds of shop bought prepared garlic (tubes and Jars) Jennie and I thought they were all disgusting. I've tried garlic in the freezer and found the smell quite overpowering. I find it keeps well out in the back kitchen where it's cool.
