Ingredients

Preparation

1

Select the best garlic cloves that you want to turn into minced dried garlic or powdered garlic. Avoid using bruised cloves, or greenish ones.

2

Peel them and garlic discard the papery skin.

3

Place the garlic cloves in a food processor and pulse for 45 seconds.

4

Lay out the garlic on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Dry in oven at  a low temperature 90°C/180°F for 6 hours, turning from time to time.

I would not say a truism , but obviously the higher the temperature, the less time it will take. However, best results are reached with patience, low temperatures and a lot of time. Not properly dried garlic can be a little chewy. If it happens to you, prolong the drying times and you’ll solve the problem.

5

When garlic is completely dried, remove from the oven, and allow to cool down.

6

In food processor, mix the coarse salt with the dried  garlic. Process until combined, for at least 45 seconds.

7

Pour flavored salt over a baking sheet and spread into a large thin. Allow flavored salt to dry overnight.

8

Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place, you can use it for weeks…
