Remove papery husk from garlic and peel each clove. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place peeled garlic in a single layer on the covered cookie sheet. Place in freezer for at least one hour.
Remove cookie sheet with frozen individual cloves and place garlic cloves in a plastic zip top bag, Now you can remove one or more cloves as your recipes directs.
Garlic cloves do not become mushy and hold their shape well but are softer than fresh. I have used the frozen cloves in lots of ways from smashing them into a paste to slicing and chopping the cloves. The flavor stays nicely as well.
