After digging them up, clean them up with water and then sun them dry as much as possible. Then wrap them up in newspaper and seal in plastic bag and store in freezer. hth

Actually if you can clean them up without using water, it would be better. Then it's like right after the harvest, you clean and dry them up and then store in freezer right away. No water ... will minimise chances of mould growing.

we clean the galangal, slice them and put them into small bags. we freeze these. each time we need some, we just take a bag. very handy.
