lots of fresh garlic

A friend gave me about 10 heads of fresh garlic. I will not be able to consume it fast enough as fresh garlic.

I'm thinking of dehydrating it in my Cuisinart air fryer/toaster oven.

Has anyone had experience with this? Or have you preserved it another way?

I was also thinking of roasting the heads whole then squeezing the paste onto parchment and freezing. Then I could break of a piece as needed.

DH got a HUGE bag of organic garlic (about 25 big heads) at Costco last week. I looked up how to preserve it, and what I finally did was put the whole heads of garlic in freezer bags and froze them. It is supposed to be a great way of preserving. I go through at least 2-4 heads a week, but 25 heads was just a bit much.
ETA: I haven't used them yet, but what from what I gathered, once defrosted, they are just like a regular fresh head of garlic.

I would also be making some roasted garlic to mash and spread on crusty bread. Yum! Enjoy your garlic however you decide to use. I have never dehydrated garlic but I bet it is a fairly easy process.

I agree with freezing them.

Freezing also sounds great. You can grate garlic which would work well if it was frozen. I prefer grating over chopping because it really makes the garlic flavor pop.

I actually buy dehydrated chopped garlic. A baggy of it keeps for a long time and are perfect in any cooked recipes. Throw a tsp. into any Italian dish and Bon Appetite!

You can also freeze it in oil in ice cube trays. Crush the garlic in a Tbsp of oil in an ice cube tray. Perfect for cooking. Pre-flavoured oil.

I could roast it and eat it all in a week. I would not have vampire issues maybe for life! Probably no friends either!

Roasted garlic. Yum! There's also a chicken recipe with 40 cloves of garlic.
