How to use
Store Garlic uncovered in a wire-mesh basket paper bag, or egg carton with plenty of dry air and little light to inhibit sprouting. Place at room temperature in a dry, dark place that has ample air circulation. Do not remove cloves from the bulb to not shorten its lifetime. Do not refrigerate or store garlic in plastic bags to avoid molding. Store minced garlic in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
Preparation and usage
Break the Garlic up into cloves it a little push with the palm of your hand against a cutting board. Take one of the cloves and hit it with the side of a knife. Peel the skin. To mince the clove of garlic, make lengthwise cuts with a chef's knife down one side and flip the garlic over each time while chopping into fine pieces.
When frying or sautéing Garlic, use a heavy bottomed deep pan, such as a saucepan and add oil. Heat oil and then add chopped Garlic or cloves. Sauté Garlic for 30 seconds or until they turn to a golden brown and then remove from heat at once to avoid burning. If a milder flavor and softer garlic is desired, try sautéing other ingredients first like onions or tomatoes before the garlic.
