Fresh Picks Tip of the Week: Storing Garlic
Under good home storage conditions a solid, well-cured, well-wrapped garlic bulb will keep 6 to 8 months or longer. The actual keeping time is affected by variety and other factors. Store garlic at a cool, stable room temperature. A temperature of 15 - 18°C (60 - 65°F) with moderate humidity and some air circulation works well. You could hang garlic in mesh bags, keep it in horticulture boxes or store bulbs in paper bags.
Did You Know? Supermarket garlic has usually been kept cold in controlled storage. If garlic has been kept cold it soon begins to sprout when brought to room temperature.
Rita Kyle is taking care of music at the market this Saturday. She's a local legend with a sweet vibe. Come for the food & arts, stay for a fantastic venue of local music and talent!!
The Summer Market continues until October 25th, with the Winter Market beginning on Saturday, November 8th at Squamish Elementary School.
