  1. Could you immediately peel the cloves and store in the oil as long as the unpeeled?

  2. After reviewing this vid, I didn’t see anything about how low it stores in fridge. I think I got crossed with another viedo. It happens this time of night.

    So how long do you think this will keep in just the fridew?

  3. The garlic confit, after simmering and cooling the unpeeled cloves in the olive oil, can stay in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. If you would like to peel garlic and simmer it the same way, the garlic would be good for about a week–the skins are protective and will help prolong a sweet, nutty flavor. Either way, for best flavor, let the oil and garlic stay out of the refrigerator for an hour or so (less if you plan to heat it and a bit more if you plan to serve it at room temperature). If you want to peel garlic cloves and store them in a jar in the fridge (without simmering) you don’t need any oil–the raw, peeled cloves can stay in a jar and stay in the fridge for 2 weeks. Once they start to sprout, they’re about to become over the hill so slit the clove lengthwise and remove the green shoot–then use the garlic as normal. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more clarification.
