So the great folks from Garlic Fest can by the station this past week to talk about the event which by the way is happening Saturday and Sunday (February 8 and 9) in John Prince Park. Click here for details.
So of course when they came by they brought us lots of garlic. I took a bunch of it home because we love garlic. But how do you store it without it going bad or sprouting. Here's a great tip the next time you have an abundance of garlic like when you buy it at Costco!
Here's what you do: Peel the garlic cloves, trim any brown patches with a pairing knife and rinse it.
Let the garlic drain completely. Boil some vinegar in a pot. Put the garlic in a sturdy glass jar and pour the hot vinegar over it.
Let the vinegar cool, then seal with a lid and store in your fridge. I've been told it can last up to a year! I can't confirm that but even if it last 6 months I'll be happy! - Sally
