    Hi guys:

    Costco sells peeled garlic, which is a neat idea.
    The problem is that after a week in the refrigerator,
    it begins to stink and to rot.

    Is there a way to prolong its 'refrigerator life?'

    Maybe it's not such a neat idea after all.

    I have heard that some people freeze these large containers of peeled
    garlic. If you try it, let us know how it works.

    I buy smaller packages of peeled garlic at the green grocer and don't
    have a rot problem.

    It might help to keep it covered with salted vinegar (say, a teaspoon salt
    per cup vinegar), in a tightly closed glass jar. That will at least
    discourage the microbes. If the little rascals want to float, I dunno the
    answer to that, maybe put some kind of weighted piece of screening on top or
    refill the jar brim full of liquid as you take pieces out.

    I ought one of those jugs of Christopher Ranch garlic years ago and
    split it with my brother. The cloves lasted 2+ months in their
    original container.

    I'd be surprised if it really started to degrade after a week and
    that you're just not expecting this to happen.

    How about in olive oil? Would that work?

    That's a Costco problem. Quantity. Isn't there a Use By date on the
    bottle? I think I spotted one and thought there was no way I could
    meet it. Found lots of whole salted anchovies in a can labelled "keep
    forever." Not so. Even fridged there's no way to keep salt and tin
    from rusting. I believe "rust" is a recognized flavor in some wines,
    but I don't like it.
