Garlic's potency has earned it the nickname "stinky rose" — almost always used with affection, of course. The compounds in garlic responsible for its penetrating aroma and flavor are valued for both their health benefits and their culinary qualities. Frontier® Minced Garlic Granules have a strong, sharp odor and a savory, strong, hot, slightly bitter flavor. The color is creamy-white with minimal amount of brown or green specks from the garlic skins or tops.
Even the earliest cooks and healers considered garlic powerful and indispensable, but when it was introduced in the United States in the 1700s, garlic was slow to catch on. Today, however, the average American consumes over 2 1/2 pounds of garlic annually. It's compatible with virtually every savory food and is available in a number of convenient dried forms.
If desired, rehydrate before using by saoking in cool water for 30 minutes. Store in a dry place to prevent clumping.
Add garlic granules directly to soups, dressings, stews, casseroles, sauces and gravies, marinades, pickles and dressings.
