    Default GARLIC


    I use powdered garlic instead of "fresh".

    But, I'm never sure of how much to substitute.

    Is there a rule of thumb ? like;
    "1 clove of garlic = 1/2 tsp of garlic powder" ??

    Nothing wrong with that, but it's just not the same for
    recipes in which the garlic is eaten raw. Kind of
    limits your repertoire.

    Lawry's Garlic Powder says 1/4 teaspoon = 1 medium
    clove.

    I've been using the Lawry's since I accidentally bought
    a bottle just after I got my Penzey's shipment, compared
    the two and decided that Lawry's is significantly better
    than Penzey's. YMMV of course.

    There are uses for garlic powder but it just isn't the same as fresh. It
    can be added to some things and will be just fine, but there are some
    things for which it is totally inappropriate. For instance, it will
    never work as a substitute for sauteed garlic.

    frankly, i see so many recipes with garlic powder (which i don't use) that
    a reverse substitution would be more valuable. i guess this will do.

    But some times of the year, the only bulb garlic you can buy has a
    harsh off-taste that overpowers any dish you're trying to make. While
    not ideal, powdered garlic saves that dish.

    I often flavor the oil with a crushed clove of garlic before I stir
    fry, removing the garlic after it's infused its flavor into the oil
    but before it burns. A useful method not possible with garlic
    powder. -aem

    Hehehe you got me giggling.

    Seriously though, there are times when powdered is more useful. I like to
    make garlic breads in the breadmaker machine. Powdered is a better choice
    there for an even spread. I'll usually also add 1 clove fresh and minced as
    fine as I can manage.

    For people who don't use garlic very often, or in small amounts, a bulb will
    go bad before they get full use of it. Not in *my* house mind you but then
    we use more than probably most do.

    Good point. Here's another one, crockpots. Although you can use powdered,
    it tends to really 'go away'. Definately one of the 'spice it twice' items
    where you add more of it near the end of cooking. Conversely, fresh garlic
    will mellow out and be much like a roasted garlic butter. I almost always
    double the amount called for in a crockpot recipe unless by eye I can see
    they adjusted correctly.

    Many crockpot recipes are not actually adapted correctly to the cooking
    difference of the device. I stew you'd make in about 1 hour on the stove
    top, doesnt just dump in unedited for crockpot use. While some spices stay
    the same, others need to be adapted. Water/stock amounts will need to be
    adjusted.

    I generally use mostly powdered garlic so only purchase a head of it
    when I have a meal planned that'll use it. I actually have a couple in
    the onion basket right now as I have some frozen cooked pasta. Leftovers
    from a potluck at work. I plan to make a seafood sauce with shrimp
    stock and clams for it, heavy on the garlic. I'll use the entire head
    for that recipe...

    I'll have to actually reduce the stock this time as I'm not making rice
    with it like I usually do.

    The pasta is for dad. I'll serve it over scrambled eggs for myself.

    If you had any semblance of a brain you might try to make it
    an intelligent one. Or do you worry that your sock-puppets
    Andy and Sheldumb might not be able to understand it then.
