Can You Freeze Peeled Garlic?

Good Questions

Q: Can you freeze peeled garlic? Whole Foods sells them by the jar, but that's a lot of garlic for two people.

It would be nice to have on hand and easier than buying whole garlic and peeling it every time you want to use it.

But we've never tried this so we don't know how much the freezing degrades the quality and flavor of the garlic. Readers, do you ever freeze your garlic?
