PURPOSE

WHAT IS IT?

Garlic, one of the most ancient of herbs, adds instant pungent happy to lots of meats, fish, and vegetables. Granulated garlic intensifies, and distributes that flavor faster. It’s also ideal for applications like making rubs, or spice blends, because it is a big-flavored dry ingredient. The garlic is dried, and then ground. Granulated is a coarse grind. You can also use garlic powder, a very fine grind, for other recipe needs.

EXPERIENCE

Hot and pungent, garlic is a unique flavor that is loved around the world for it’s bright flavor. Important to use in moderation, it’s a powerful savory herb that broadens the flavor of so many spices.

CULINARY GEOGRAPHY

Garlic is believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, but, thanks to human propagation over millennia, it can be found, both domesticated, and growing wild, over much of the world today.

TRADITIONAL USES

  • A savory base to spice blends, and rubs;
  • Garlic bread uses granulated, most often, along with butter, and parmesan cheese;
  • Common flavor accelerant in marinara sauce;
  • A key ingredient in Taiwanese fried chicken.

A FEW IMPROVISATIONAL RIFFS:

  • The Jazz Chef‘s panko-pistachio-crusted pork tenderloin;
  • Add to rock salt finely minced sage, and granulated onion for a fun “dip” sprinkled on a plate for bbq steaks;
  • Spray a little liquified ghee over waffles, and top with granulated garlic, chopped parsley and finely grated parmigiano reggiano. Toss in the broiler to melt the cheese for a waffled garlic bread side for dinner, or a lunch sandwich made with garlic bread waffles;
  • Add a little to caccio e pepe, the salt and pepper pasta, for a bit of added savory.

USE NOTE

Spicejungle’s granulated garlic doesn’t have a huge amount of anti-caking agent in it. While leaving a silica gel desiccant pack in the storage container helps keep moisture down, If you live in a humid climate, it can cake up, and harden. Simply grab a chunk, and use any fine cheese grater, to grate the chunk over the food. It will return to its granulated form with grating.

THE BACKSTORY

Garlic has been used for millennia as a seasoning, a currency, a medicine, a religious herb, and a plant only fit for hogs.

The ancient Egyptians handed out garlic to slaves as a sort of “pay.” The only known slave revolts were over shortages of garlic caused by regional flooding.

In ancient Greece, and then Rome, garlic had uses culinarily, medicinally, and in religious ceremony. Garlic has been used to protect households from evil spirits, and even ward off the odd vampire or two.
