Garlic Storage Tip:

Keep garlic on hand for adding a boost of flavor to many recipes--without adding fat or calories. Store fresh garlic in a cool, dry, dark place. Leave the bulb whole, as individual cloves dry out quickly. Minced garlic is available in easy-to-use jars and will keep in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
