What Is the Best Way to Store Peeled Garlic Cloves?

Good Questions

Q: I have several peeled garlic cloves left over from my last big dinner bash. When I walked in the house today, I thought "gosh, my house smells like garlic!" (The kitchen is 3 rooms away from the back entry way.)

How can I store these cloves so they are not smelling up the whole downstairs of my house?

Editor: Cynthia, wow! That's some pungent garlic. Personally, I usually put peeled garlic in a small baggie or covered container in the fridge. I haven't had any problem with it stinking up the house that way!

Readers, what do you do with peeled garlic?
