Garlic Powder

How do ya feel about it?

I have never bought, but recrently seen it in some recipes and been wondering if i should? I always thought that it looks far to artifcial for my likings and that fresh is the only way to go.
Should I change my thinkings on this?

It is great stuff. Try some sprinkled in a grilled cheese sandwich as as part of a dry rub for meats. I would never be without it.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy it, particularly Lawry's. It's premier in my book.

Having said this, Buck and I use about a head of garlic or more per week, but there are some recipes that benefit from garlic salt/powder. It's a staple on our spice shelf, so much so that the label is completely rubbed off from use over the years. Of course, the bottle is over 30-years-old. Not the stuff inside, though. That turns over quite quickly.

IMO it's a staple for cooking.

Garlic powder is dried, ground garlic. Nothing artificial.

Garlic salt is a mix of garlic powder and salt.

As Katie and GB said, garlic powder is vital in dry rubs and for seasoning all kinds of dishes.

I guess i didn't mean artificial persay, just I think of garlic as being fresh and making it dried seems odd to me

You want to have it on hand because you wont always have fresh garlic on hand also its good in soups and sauces and for a dry rub on meats.

Missing out is right. Also, try onion powder as well. Try sprinkling both on your next slice of pizza.
