Storage Method:

A whole, unpeeled garlic head actually lasts for quite a whole, about six months. However, an unpeeled clove that has been separated from its head will stay good for about three weeks. To know if your garlic has gone bad, give it a gentle squeeze. If it’s firm, that means it’s still good. If it’s soft, that means it has gone bad.

The best place to store your garlic would be the kitchen, somewhere with enough ventilation, and in a basket, not sealed up.

Store peeled garlic in an airtight container or zip-lock bag and place it in the fridge. It can last for about a week, although it may lose its pungency.

 

1. Unpeeled garlic or peeled garlic?

A whole unpeeled garlic can last up to 6 months or more if it is stored properly, while peeled garlic can degrade very quickly, peeled cloves can only last up to a week in the fridge. Peeled garlic is also less flavourful than unpeeled garlic.

2. Side effects of eating too much garlic

Garlic is nutrient-rich and has a variety of health benefits but eating too much garlic can cause bad breath, digestive issues, acid reflux and also increase the risk of bleeding.
