Storing Garlic

My uncle harvested his garlic and gave me 9 heads of it.
The heads are still brown with earth.
A couple of them have started to sprout.
I can see the garlic flesh on a few cloves.
I'd like to be able to use this garlic.
What should I do with these? How do I store it?

Need butter alternative for cookies

I love to bake cookies and always use butter.
This butter gives my husband horrible heartburn and he has asked me if I could figure out a way to stop using butter.
How am I going to do that without sacrificing the flavor?
Maybe I could do (gasp) 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening?

Candied Clementine Peels

There was no pulp left after peeling.
I think it was the clementines.
I'll try oranges next.

Candied Clementine Peels

Chefj -

I brought the peels to a boil in a saucepan 3/4 full of cold water with 1/2 teaspoon salt and boiled, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Then drained and rinsed. (I forgot to rinse the peels the first time, but rinsed the 2nd time).
I did this twice.

Then I brought 2C regular sugar and 1 1/2C water to a boil in a saucepan, then reduced heat and simmered 5 minutes.
Added the peels and gently simmered, uncovered, for about 1 hour.

I transfer the candied peels to a lightly oiled rack and let drain for a few hours.

Then I covered them with sugar.

Candied Clementine Peels

Any ideas why my candied clementine peels have a bitter aftertaste?
Everything else about them is so delicious.
I must get rid of the bitterness at the end.
Is it because I used clementines?
