onion powder is another one that's always had me puzzled. I've never bought it.

It's laisez-faire, I don't even give a care.

GB, I forgot about onion powder. It's nice stirred into sour cream when spooned on top of baked potatoes. Nice hint of onion when chive aren't available.

Yep, we always have onion powder, too. Thanks for bringing it up.

I also like dried minced garlic or onions great in a pinch when making soups or stews or hydrated on bagels before baking

I prefer granulated garlic rather than garlic powder. It just seems to be more substantial.

I used the minced garlic - the kind you put in the refrigerator. I buy a big jar of it. My brother who is somewhat of a chef himself claims the garlic in the jars are just as good as the garlic cloves and that feeling like you always have to buy garlic cloves is just hogwash. I do buy the garlic cloves sometime though, depending on what I'm making. I had garlic powder as well in the cabinet, but I"m not sure if I have any now. I'll have to check now "lol". The bottom of one of my cabinets is all for spices.

As mentioned earlier, garlic powder is great sprinkled on a slice of cheese pizza. I will also roast some potatoes with barbecue sauce, then sprinkle some garlic powder on them at the end. Cut italian bread thin, a little butter + garlic salt, bake low heat until crisp makes a quick garlic toast or crouton snack. On french fries. Garlic powder is in no way a substitution for fresh garlic, but it definately has its place in the kitchen ( in my opinion)

oh my yes, I keep garlic powder, in the freezer. Buy it by the pound from Penzey's. I raise garlic and sell garlic. But I also keep garlic and onion powder in the freezer, double bagged.

It is only dried ground garlic. Can't be without garlic.
