We all know that fresh garlic is delicious and pure, and it is one of the seasonings we often use. However, the shelf life of fresh garlic is only 4-6 months, so what can we use instead? The answer is dried garlic granules.
Dried garlic granules are the dried, ground form of fresh garlic. Using dried diced garlic is a convenient option in the kitchen because it doesn't germinate and turn bitter like fresh garlic, and granulated garlic retains its flavor throughout its shelf life. Granulated garlic can last for 2-3 years if stored properly. And the taste of dried garlic granules is stronger and more intense. When using dried garlic, 1/4 teaspoon of dried garlic is equivalent to a fresh clove.
Uses of the dried garlic granules: Sprinkle into pasta sauces, pizza, and recipes before cooking. Meanwhile, dried garlic granules are also often used as a seasoning in sauces and dry rubs, as it distributes the garlic flavor in dishes well without adding moisture.
