Have you tried storing garlic heads, cloves or onions in your kitchen fridge or hanging around in the drawer for awhile? Maybe you are experiencing they become soft and mouldy when the time you used them. The same problem is likely to occur if they are stored in a sealed plastic container.
These common but powerful herbs needs to be stored in a cool place away from direct sunlight. It needs to “breathe” and allowing the correct air circulation will extend its shelf life.
When visiting TheYummyLife, I’ve found a simple way to store these herbs. Though, Monica only shares tips on storing onion, garlic and shallots, I think it can also be applied to other bulb herbs you want to preserve its firmness and freshness.
Would it be possible to store them in a regular ol’ paper bag punched with holes? Monica was skeptical at first, when her mom told her the simple secret. But when she realized that her mother seldom wrong, she gave it a try. After three months the results awed her. Her onions is as firm and fresh as when she bought them.
