Garlic Know-How
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.
