I have a few cloves of garlic that have been sitting at room temperature for around 2 mos or more... I keep forgetting to use them. My question is: How long will garlic keep?

Unbroken bulbs keep for 3-4 months.

How do they smell?  You may want ot use them if not right away, roast them and smash for garlic paste to use at a later date, refridgerate.

Not very long. Maybe a couple weeks. If it's soft, or hard and brown, or obviously moldy it's no longer good.

Garlic keeps for a long time, crack 'em open and see what they look like.

Garlic keeps for ever lol. Break them open. If they aren't odd colored or molded they are fine
