Using a jar is the ideal way to store your garlic and make it last longer. It is made of porcelain and comes with a matte, grey glaze. The holes at the bottom have a vital function, as they provide the garlic with circulation and let it breathe, so it does not dry out. Keeping your garlic in a jar also protects it from sunlight which would otherwise cause the garlic to go mouldy a lot faster. Earth is equally suitable for storing onions and potatoes. A must for any home cook and ideal gift for those who take cooking seriously.
