safely storing fresh peeled garlic cloves

Asked October 25, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

how can i safely store fresh peeled garlic cloves? have seen conflicting information at other sources e.g. use olive oil/don't use because of growth of botulism spores, keep a few weeks in fridge, keep months in freezer ... would appreciate clarification on how to do this properly. was "gifted" with large ziploc bag full. currently in fridge. thank you for your help.

Here is some great information from University of California, Davis about Safe Methods to Store, Preserve and Enjoy Garlic. Please click the link to the pdf below. The information includes safe ways to freeze or store peeled garlic in wine or vinegar in the refrigerator. http://anrcatalog.ucdavis.edu/pdf/7231.pdf
