    Default Freezing Garlic.

    Does anybody freeze garlic.
    I have just watched a video of a lady freezing garlic.
    She put the cloves in the food processor and crushed them.
    Then put the mixture in an ice cube tray and put it in the freezer.
    Surely this must taint all the other foods.
    Any other ideas for preserving garlic.
    I am about wary of preserving it in oil.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    I freeze in the same way with no issues. Once frozen just pop em out and store in a freezer bag

    Yeah I do that too, but when I feel really lazy I peel them and chuck them in a bag, whole, skin on. It only takes two minutes to defrost them enough to slice, and they smell less in the freezer that way.

    Why not put them in your rice cooker on warm for about 20 days making sure to damp down occasionally to prevent dehydrating and you have black garlic. The result is garlic with the texture of firm jelly with a taste between garlic and balsamic. The tasty cloves can be eaten raw. This lasts for ages in a jar in the fridge. Those which turn out hard as some do can be put in a coffee grinder to produce a sprinkle seasoning.
