PURPOSE

WHAT IS IT?

Garlic, one of the most ancient of herbs, adds instant pungent happy to lots of meats, fish, and vegetables. Powdered garlic intensifies, and distributes that flavor without any grit. It’s ideal for applications like a flour breading, or to mix into sauces where you want just the flavor. The garlic is roasted, dried, and then ground. You can also use roasted ground garlic, a bit more coarse, in recipes where it will break down well, or not be noticed.

EXPERIENCE

Roasted garlic is a more mellow flavor that has the savory of garlic, with a bit less of the pungency. Important to use in moderation, it’s a warm version of the savory herb that compliments 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

  • Excellent with white pepper and thyme on a German pork roast;
  • Garlic bread with butter, and parmesan cheese;
  • Nice mellower add to a shrimp pasta with artichokes and white wine;
  • A warmer add to flour for a fried food coating.

A FEW IMPROVISATIONAL RIFFS:

  • The warm savory in my Jazz Chef buttermilk-chive biscuits;
  • Toss with a bit of ghee on steamed veggies;
  • Sneak a bit into the dough for over-the-top good garlic bagels;
  • Sprinkle over steak with white pepper, and black pepper for my Simply Wonderful Rub.

USE NOTE

Spicejungle’s powdered 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 grater to grate the chunk over the food. It will return to its powdered 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.
