I recently bought an economy size jar of chopped garlic in olive oil. I will not use it up by the time it expires. If I re-package it in some smaller containers can it be frozen for future use?

Garlic stored in olive oil can be put in the freezer. Due to concerns with Botulism, garlic in oil needs to be used within 10 days and then either has to be frozen or thrown away. For more information about freezing garlic in oil visit the Colorado State University Extension website.

  1. I just wanted to thank you for your reply. It has been about 10 days so I will be sure to pack up and freeze what’s left in the jar ASAP!
