A popular seasoning made from dried garlic flakes that have been ground into a powder. Garlic powder is concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Garlic salt should not be used as a substitute because more of it is required to achieve the same concentration of flavor, which may result in too much salt being added to the food. Garlic powder is often substituted if necessary for fresh garlic cloves, using 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to equal one fresh clove of common garlic.

A bulbous plant consisting of single head containing smaller bulbs or cloves individually wrapped in papery skins, which are all wrapped tightly together with another layer of dry papery skin, forming the bulb head.
When selecting, choose garlic that is plump and firm with paper-like skins that are tight and intact. Avoid any that are soft or that have begun to shrivel.
Place garlic cloves in the microwave for 15 seconds and the skins should peel off easily.
