Good morning. I have a bag of 30 peeled garlic cloves that expire in a couple of days. Can I freeze and use as needed?

Yes, you can. If I was in your shoes I would be tempted to dice it all up (hopefully you have a little processor) prior to freezing. I buy it frozen sometimes and it comes in a container that is like a super mini ice cube tray. Each one holding about 1/2 tsp of garlic. I'm not really sure how it be to try and dice as it thawed if you freeze it whole, might be easier to dice while still frozen.

Thanks Linda and Carrie, going to dice and freeze!

You can also roast the garlic and then freeze once cooled. I have never had good luck freezing raw garlic, but once roasted it keeps with no problem.
