I use them until they sprout or sometimes they get real rubbery. I have bad luck buying garlic, its so inexpensive, I usually pick up a clove every time I grocery shop that way I've got it when I need it :) You are talking about cloves of garlic? That's what I'm thinking.

Yes,cloves.I can't remember when I bought it,but it must've been a couple of months ago.It looks ok,I just don't want to get food poisoning.

As long as its not moldy it should be fine. Mine will get yucky spots on them or like I said, they get rubbery and then start sprouting a green sprout, I throw them out then.

I just store a head of garlic in my pantry in a little ceramic open pot. It's good for several weeks for sure.

If you roast it in then, it will keep for a very long time frozen. If you freeze raw garlic the texture will change when you thaw it.
