Having dehydrated garlic around is essential. Not only is it a wonderful flavoring agent, but this garlic doesn't spoil. To re-hydrate dried garlic, soak in a bowl of warm water for 15 minutes, drain and use as fresh.
Dehydrated garlic is a no-fuss alternative to mincing fresh garlic. Use 1/8 tsp. to replace 1 fresh clove garlic. Try it with:
- Hummus: Soak in lemon juice to rehydrate before blending into your favorite recipe.
- Tomato Sauce: Mix with Italian-style herbs and simmer in crushed or diced tomatoes.
- Pickles: Swap for fresh cloves in a pickling brine.
