What to do with Costco’s
3-pound plastic jar of
freshly peeled garlic? This
Aliso Viejo, California,
member puts it right in the
freezer. The garlic keeps
well and doesn’t even
stick together. Take out
as many cloves as you
need and defrost in the
microwave for about a
minute. Add to soups,
sauces and other dishes.
Costco Tip: The flavor
of garlic may become
stronger when it’s frozen.
