Warning About Storing Garlic Cloves In Oil

There is a common kitchen tip that says to store peeled garlic cloves in oil, unfortunately, botulism can develop when garlic is stored in this manner, especially if it is stored at room temperature. The garlic and oil should be used immediately or stored in the refrigerator for no more than a week. It's a handy tip but not worth the health risk.

Never any problems here. I have been doing it for a long time now. Just make sure the garlic is fresh, and use olive oil.
