Garlic Powder

Garlic powder is a seasoning made from ground, dehydrated garlic. It has a strong garlic taste and aroma that can add flavor to many foods and recipes. Garlic powder is made by taking fresh garlic cloves, peeling them, slicing or crushing them, and then dehydrating them until the moisture is removed. The dehydrated garlic pieces are then ground into a fine powder. Compared to fresh garlic, garlic powder has a more concentrated flavor so you generally need less of it when cooking or seasoning foods. Garlic powder works well to season meats, vegetables, soups, sauces and more. It's a handy spice to keep in your pantry so you can easily add garlic taste to dishes. Look for garlic powder in the spice aisle of grocery stores or make your own using a food dehydrator and blender or food processor.
