Garlic Paste

Can you use garlic paste from the tube the same as you would fresh garlic? Is there any place that it would work BETTER than fresh garlic? I have some, but I'm such a fresh food freak that I can't imagine the tube version being better than fresh. Has anyone used this before?


Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

Yes. You have, so just use it up. It is very fine so it would make a good garlic butter.

I've used the garlic paste in the tube for group camping trips where I'm going to be pressed for time while cooking for largish groups.

Fresh garlic tastes better.

Garlic Paste is great to use in a tube - in fact it is easier because you don't have to cut up the garlic.

I don't care for it much and really can't stand the pre-minced stuff. I think they both have "off" tastes.

I tried garlic paste once ... to me it's just wet garlic powder - it gives you a garlic "taste" but not the true garlic "flavor". Depending on how it is being used you may not notice the difference.
