Keep These Veggies Away From Fresh Garlic
Vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes, and green onions all produce a gas called ethylene, which can cause other produce to ripen prematurely, including garlic.
To stop your garlic from turning bitter and sprouting, store it away from these veggies. Fruits like apples, blueberries, grapes, and mangoes are also ethylene-producing.
Store fresh garlic bulbs in a cool, dry place. Once it's peeled, sliced, or minced, you'll want to keep the garlic in the fridge, away from ethylene-producing items.
To preserve your garlic in the fridge, store ethylene-producing produce in plastic wrap or a zip-top bag, or keep it in the bottom drawer and keep the garlic on the top shelf.
