How to Dry Garlic
So I've got a whole bunch of delicious local, organic garlic and I don't want it to go bad. The logical solution? Dry it.
Here's how you can dry your own fresh garlic (from your own garden or the farmers market) yourself:
Take a bunch of fresh garlic. Tye it up, and hang it in a cool, dry place. Let dry there for a couple weeks (elephant garlic needs four weeks or more). When dry, store it in a cool, dry place. I keep mine in a basket on the counter. It'll keep like that for months.
I think this is one of my favorite parts of gardening: preserving the harvest. It remind me of Under the Tuscan Sun...
