Homemade garlic powder is fresh, flavorful and surprisingly easy to make. Here's how to do it:


  • Garlic Cloves


1. Peel your garlic cloves, and slice them thin.

2. Then, place the garlic slices in a 150 degree oven or in a dehydrator, and heat until dry.

Tip: The garlic is dry when you can crush it in your hand and it crumbles easily.

3. Allow the garlic to cool. Then, grind with a coffee grinder, spice mill, food processor or mortar and pestle until you reach your desired consistency.

4. Store your finished garlic powder in an air-tight container in a cool, dry spot or freeze.
