On American Test Kitchen on PBS, they use a lot of peeled garlic in a bag and keep it in the freezer. Since I gave up on growing garlic after a couple of disastrous years trying and buying garlic only to find half of the cloves were bad, I decided to try the peeled garlic. Glad I did. I too keep the peeled garlic in the freezer and it's ready when I want it. I can use it whole, sliced, smashed, or grated. I made chicken broth yesterday to can today and used six cloves of garlic in it. No fuss I just opened the bag and took out the garlic cloves all nice and peeled and plopped them in the pot.

Great idea Sara! Thank you for sharing it with us. I use garlic quite a bit each week and have noticed a lot of the cloves were not edible. I will keep the best and freeze them to make life easier when I'm making dinner.

Dawn, I buy the peeled garlic from Aldi in a 6 oz bag for $2.65.

Sara, you buy it already peeled? I have only seen it unpeeled in mesh bags. Is it kept with the produce or where do you find it in your Aldi?

Denise, I have home delivery so I don't know where it is at Aldi. Just guessing I would say the produce section since it isn't frozen.

Michelle it is so handy for me to just take out the bag and use what I need.

I've also put mine in a canning jar in the freezer and it works well. I was afraid the smell would escape a bag and ruin things in the freezer that don't go well with garlic LOL!

Good to know Sara. I too find the garlic at the supermarket to be so so. I find myself throwing half the garlic out. Will try the peel freezer method. Thanks.

I bought a basket full of garlic on the cheap from my small town country market. Some had sprouted, I threw it in with veggie scraps for broth
I'm going to peel and put in mason jar for freezer

Today's good mood brought to you by a lot of coffee!!!

Michelle, it is so handy to have peeled garlic in the freezer. I've given up on growing garlic so store bought peeled garlic is the next best thing.
