My dad used to do the same thing, doing maybe one or two heads at a time and then throwing them into a small plastic container filled with either vegetable oil or olive oil, with a layer of plastic wrap on top before sealing it up. My cousin (who is a chef) later told me that he does the same thing, and likes doing it with vegetable oil or olive oil for the extra flavor.
