You might consider seperating some of the cloves from the heads and replanting them (root end down) 3" to 4" down in the soil and 3 or 4" apart...
The green sprouts make very tasty chives and the cloves will develop into heads for later seperating and use as needed...If I find that I have some sprouting, out they go to the garden..Good Luck

If you still need ideas on using it up, you could make some garlic flavoured oils to use in your food or dressings.

Thanks Constance, that's a great idea for freezing the garlic. I always use garlic when cooking and, for the first time, my husband has planted two rows of the stuff. He has begun pulling it and is drying it in his shed/workshop. Boy, does it smell garlicky (sic?) in there and I'm glad it's not being dried in the attached garage or, horrors, in my laundry room. I'm definitely going to try your idea, especially with the smaller heads and/or any that might begin to sprout. We understand it keeps well, just hanging around, but your method should be super for excess so it doesn't go to waste.
