A form of garlic characterized by its fine powdery consistency and its likeness to fresh garlic in flavor and odor. Flavor notes include sulfur, toasted and carmalized.
Use anywhere that requires the fresh taste of garlic without the noticeable particles. Use in Italian and Mexican dishes, meats, ethnic dishes, soups and marinades. Mix with soft butter or margarine for an easy garlic spread. Add to mashed potatoes for delicious garlic mashed potatoes.
Use in dry form or combined with just enough water to form a paste. One pound of garlic powder has the equivalent flavor of 5 lbs. of raw, finely minced garlic.
