Storing Garlic In Cellar

Can I store fresh garlic in a brown paper sack somewhere other than the refrigerator, such as a cellar?

You shouldn't store garlic in the fridge at all - a kitchen countertop works fine.

If you are looking for longer shelf life, you could find a dark place for them, but if your basement is at all damp, I'd avoid it - moisture makes garlic grow mold and shortens the life. Above all, don't store them near potatoes or onions - their moisture is bad for the garlic.

If you have oodles of garlic (I think oodles is four 'bulbs' or more), mince when 'fresh' really well and store immediately in a 'small' glass jar in the fridge (I store mine on the door in the fridge). It will last for a few months that way! I prefer mincing a bunch up all at the same time cause then it's conveniently ready for day to day cooking :-) It does not lose it's flavor doing this and no chances that your cloves in the bag have dried up if you don't use garlic often ;-)

I clean all my garlic - put it in a jar with cold water. This has lasted for a full year. I have maybe 4 or 5 cloves in cold water from last fall. I store it in my fridge.

If you have a nice dry cupboard,pantry or kitchen; why not try a garlic braid. When you need garlic just pluck it off. You can find instructions by googling.
