I prefer fresh, but I do buy a (jar) Garlic/Ginger mix that's pretty darn good in Asian dishes..

What brand is the garlic ginger mix because I only find Swad brand and it's not that good in my opinion, rather putrid, and neither is their garam masala as it has too much cinnamon.

I can only find it in an Indian/Pakistani market, and it is the SWAD brand....As to it's quality....I have nothing to compare it to, so I can give no real meaningful review.....Nothing can compare to fresh garlic and ginger....but we do enjoy it from time to time.....Thanks

I have been using Dorit brand minced frozen garlic from Trader Joes. I love it! It is frozen in one tbs amounts so it is super easy to use and it tastes really good.

GB - I use this and it's excellent. They also have ginger, cilantro, basil, and parsley. Great to have in your freezer.

Yep, I have the basil in my freezer too. The basil I was not impressed with, but it was better than not having any basil. The garlic is by far my favorite.
