a kg bag of peeled whole cloves of garlic. not sure what to do with it to store it.
A friend suggested to put some in a jar, and cover with olive oil.
Anyone any great ideas.

I throw them into the blender with a little oil to make a paste and keep them in a jar. Lasts for ages.

What a brilliant idea . it's a must try!
I pickle some & it's a big hit with my vegetarian niece.
Makes 3 x 225g jars
I think it's a Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall recipe
500g new season garlic
1 tspn fennel seeds
about 12 peppercorns (I use black red & white)
4 -6 bay leaves
200ml cider vinegar
50g sugar
Good pinch saffron threads
Plunge garlic into boiling water for a minute to help to remove the outer skins. Remove, drain & pat dry. Peel & pack the cloves into sterilised jars & putting the bay leaves,fennel seeds & peppercorns as you go.
Boil the vinegar, sugar & saffron for a couple of minutes & then pour over the garlic & seal the jars.

I keep a bag of peeled garlic in the freeze, along with ginger. I take it out as needed and grate on a fine grater.
