The right temperature for garlic
When storing garlic, a temperature of 15 to 18 degrees is ideal. Since the room temperature is often higher than that, you need to find a good spot for your garlic. For example, a storage place closer to the floor is cooler than the top shelves in your kitchen cupboard, and is therefore a better option. Also, do not place the garlic bulb near the kettle, oven, stove or other any hot appliance. In addition, choose a spot where no bright sunlight falls. Garlic prefers to be in the shade.
Ventilation for storage
Garlic bulbs are usually sold in a net, and for good reason. The bulbs of the plant need ventilation to maintain their shelf life for a long time. At home it is therefore best to store the garlic separately rather than in a pantry, bag or airtight storage box.
Store peeled garlic cloves
Have you accidentally peeled more cloves than you need? Peeled (and even sliced) garlic can also be stored for a while. Place the cloves in an airtight storage container (yes, you can if they are peeled). A glass container is better than a plastic container because plastic absorbs the strong garlic odor. The container must seal tightly to prevent everything in your fridge from smelling like the fragrant garlic. You can store the peeled and / or sliced garlic in the refrigerator for up to two days.
