Don’t Refrigerate Your Garlic

When you purchase whole heads of garlic, it’s best to store them at room temperature rather than in the refrigerator.  (The cold, moist refrigerator environment can make the garlic less flavorful and encourage sprouting.)  I like to store my garlic in a bowl on my countertop, away from direct sunlight.  (Note, however, that chopped garlic and peeled garlic cloves should be refrigerated.)
