How to Store Garlic

Braids should be hung in a well ventilated dry dark place out of direct sunlight.

Light and moisture are garlic’s worst enemies, as they both cause mold to grow. Instead, store garlic bulbs at room temperature in a dry, dark place that has plenty of air circulation, like in a wire-mesh basket or open paper bag in a cupboard or pantry.

If you have old stockings, drop a bulb in the toe, tie a knot above it, drop in another bulb, tie another knot, and so on until you fill up the stocking, and hang it in a well-ventilated dry dark place.
