Is McCormick jar garlic discontinued?

I like getting the jar of McCormick mushed garlic. The cost is a little up there, but one jar will last me a month or more.

The last couple of times at Winco, though, I haven't seen it. I thought it was just Winco (now they've decided to quit carrying non-stick Reynolds foil), but I haven't been able to find the garlic at any grocery store lately. Does anyone know if it's been discontinued?

I suppose I could just call the company. LOL

I buy Kirkland California diced garlic from COSTCO. The jar is way bigger than I need, but the quality is outstanding. I'm guessing this stuff is Gilroy garlic. The best garlic on the planet. Most jarred garlic seems to come from Asia, and it is crap!

I can't help you with garlic, rodentraiser, but for that non-stick foil, do you have a Walmart in the area? Here, they have their brand of non-stick, which is cheaper.

In the early '70s, we lived in San Jose, driving anywhere South would take you through Gilroy and the aroma of garlic, then-wife called it the stink, was pungent for miles around. Their festival is coming up in a few weeks.

But to the original question, I don't know. Only buy bulbs.

According to their website, minced garlic is listed as a product. It's a dried garlic. They don't list a mushed garlic.

Fresh garlic for us. We've tried jarred garlic and and pre-peeled garlic. nothing compares to fresh, IMHO.

+3 ^ ditto. I think we'll have a lot of these here. I will admit that I sometimes buy pre-peeled garlic, when I'm making something like nam prik pao or crunchy garlic (both fried slowly in oil, until brown and crunchy), when I am almost out of garlic (about now, before harvest!), but otherwise, it's not worth buying.

I prefer fresh garlic, but a good garlic puree can be very handy, especially one that doesn't have off flavours. There times that I have very few spoons and if I have a decent jarred garlic puree, it means there are more dishes that I am willing to make. I haven't found a good one in quite a while.
