Chef Art Smith says garlic is probably the most popular seasoning in everyone's house. The key to making the most of it? Use fresh garlic or no garlic at all!
- If the garlic is sprouted, it's going to be bitter. If it's shriveled, it's not going to taste fresh. It's important when selecting garlic that it has a firm head.
- If it has a light garlic smell, buy it. If it smells too harsh, don't buy it!
- When storing, do not keep it longer than a month, because it will lose flavor. Remember to always keep the garlic in a cool, dry place.
