It's a squat earthenware jar with holes and a lid. I think my mom regifted it to me. The opening is too small for a whole head of garlic to fit through. So, should I bother breaking the head into cloves? I go through garlic pretty quickly, so I'm not too concerned about making it last longer. Until now I've just been throwing it into a basket with the onions and shallots. Any reason to stop?
Edit: I see that the correct term is garlic cellar.
