In the past, I’ve used 15-20 onions per plait but it was a bit heavy, I thought the hook would be pulled out of the kitchen wall! So I’ve used 10 per plait this year. It’s not enough to hang perfectly but they’re hanging so that’s good enough 😀

Garlic

Peeled cloves. My kitchen had a strong garlicky aroma for a couple of days after The Grand Peeling 😀

Garlic whizzed with olive oil then frozen in little blobs to stop it all sticking together. Once frozen, I tipped them into a freezer bag

    What a great idea, does freezing it affect the flavour of the garlic in any way?

      We froze some a couple of weeks ago, I’m going to give it another couple of weeks then test it. I’m not sure if that’s enough time to test for flavour loss? If it loses any, I’ll add some fresh garlic to boost it 😀 I’ll report back with results.
