All through last winter, especially as I cooked for the Dark Days Challenge (see category on the sidebar), I complained and complained of not finding any local garlic. It's entirely growable in our area.
My friend Rachel suddenly bought a half bushel! Friends of hers grew it, and she generously shared half with me. She repeated the storage instructions: cool and dark. I packed the garlic bulbs between newspaper in a cardboard box and set it next to the floor on my pantry shelves. Did I do right? Is there a better way to store garlic in my city house?
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, part time cookbook editor, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
