Long Term Storage: Garlic should be stored in a cool dark place with moderate humidity. Ideal long term storage conditions are 55 to 60ºF and humidity levels of 60-70%. Temperatures below 50ºF can lead to sprouting. High humidity levels and temperatures greater than 65ºF can lead to rot.
Short Term Storage: For short-term storage (1-2 months), ambient temperatures between 68 to 86ºF and humidity levels less than 75% are adequate.
Freezer Storage: Minced garlic can be packed in olive oil inside small condiment containers or ice cube trays and frozen. Just pop out a cube as needed for cooking.
