Best Way to Store Your Oil and Confit

The garlic confit is best stored in a small mason jar with a lid. Pack the confit into the jar to remove any air pockets then pour jut enough of the infused oil to cover the garlic then seal with lid for optimal freshness. The roasted garlic will last about 6 weeks in the fridge or 6 months in the freezer

The infused avocado oil can be stored in the fridge to prevent botulism in any pourable container you like to use for your oils. You can use the oil cold straight into a pan to sauce with or blend in dressings or aioli.

What Vessel to Roast the Garlic and Shallots In

I have enameled baking dishes that are great for casseroles and roasting meat because they maintain heat and are fairly easy to clean and maintain.

These dishes can be a little pricy so if you don't have one a normal 8x8 pyrex dish or a 10 inch cast iron skillet will do just fine.
