So 70Ford. Have you done this with jarred minced garlic? How did it taste? Did you have to use twice as much to get flavor you would have if using fresh?

I freeze fresh, whole garlic cloves all the time. I wouldn' t do it with the prepared, chopped garlic. Too many preservatives.

A trick I've used is to mince the garlic and then mix it with a fair amount of olive oil and then freeze it. The olive oil helps protect the quality of the garlic, and if you get the proportions right, prevents it from truly freezing, so you can fairly easily spoon out what you need. I doubt this would work for cloves which are already stored in a preservative jar , but it is a viable option for long term storage.
