    How To Make Garlic Powder At Home

    Garlic powder is definitely one of the most important ingredients in my kitchen. I use it when making chili, meatloaf, spaghetti, casseroles, and all sorts of other dishes.

    Why make it at home when you can just buy it? For one, you'll save money. You'll spend half as much on garlic cloves as you would on premade powder. Granted, we're only talking ten or twenty dollars. But the other reason is quality. Homemade garlic powder has a much better flavor, and you'll notice the difference when cooking with it.

    Plus, making garlic powder is fairly easy, as you'll see in this video by Big Family Homestead. Here's what you'll need:

    • Peeled garlic cloves
    • Food processor
    • Parchment paper
    • Food dehydrator
    • Blender

    Here's how to make it:

    1. Put the cloves into the food processor and grind them up.

    2. Put a piece of parchment paper on the jelly tray of your food processor, and spread the ground cloves onto it.

    3. Take the dehydrator outside (so it doesn't stink up your home), set it to 160°F, and leave it for several hours.

    4. Pour the dehydrated garlic into your blender and blend it up into a powder. It won't be quite as fine as store-bought garlic powder, but it will taste great.

      1. Thanks for this recipe. I love the idea of making my own garlic powder. Do you have any idea the shelf life of homemade garlic powder? Thanks.
