Garlic, native to Central Asia, quickly spread to the Mediterranean and now is cultivated and widely used all around the world. As it’s one of the most popular seasonings, you will find yourself in need of garlic when cooking almost any dish.
Having dehydrated garlic around is essential. Not only is it a wonderful flavoring agent, but this garlic doesn’t spoil. Using dehydrated garlic saves time by eliminating peeling, saves your hands from smelling and your eyes from tearing. There is no need to re-hydrate granulated garlic. About 1/8 tsp. is equal to 1 average size clove. If you are on a low sodium diet, substitute 1/2 tsp. of salt with 1/8 tsp. garlic.
