Garlic

Garlic Facts:

Allicin, the active ingredient in garlic, is what gives it its distinctive flavor. Garlic is a great source of antioxidants, and it may help lower blood pressure.

Shopping and Storage Tips:

  • Choose garlic heads that are firm to the touch. Store garlic in a cool, dry place in an open container, away from other foods.
  • Do not refrigerate or freeze unpeeled garlic. Peeled garlic cloves can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
