Garlic Powder Organic - Dried Ground Garlic

View larger Image

Steenbergs organic garlic powder is a great substitute for peeling and chopping garlic bulbs all day long.  Garlic can be used fresh or dried. It is a key ingredient to most cuisines in the world from Italian to French to Indian and Chinese. When heated garlic's pungency and strong odour get lost and its aroma becomes more subtle and less dominant, harmonising with ginger, pepper, chillis and many other spices.  Steenbergs organic garlic comes in powder or organic garlic granules. This version is powdered. As it is organic garlic it doesn't have any anti-caking agents in it, so it may cake up over time. This can be broken up with a fork.


Garlic, Allium sativum, comes from the same family as chives, leeks and onions. Garlic is grown best in rich, moist soil in a sunny position, but overall it is pretty hardy. Garlic is a hardy perennial with long. flat, solid, spear-shaped gray-green leaves; the garlic leaves grow to 30cm (12 inches) and 25mm wide (1 inch), then like chives the flower is a happy and jolly mauve-tinted white petals that grow above the leaves on a rod-like stalk. The spice part is the bulb, which grows under the ground. Garlic bulbs are white or pink skinned and consist of a collection of triangular segments - cloves - in a paper-like outer skin. To harvest, the plants are pulled up when the tops dry out, then hung out to dry in the shade. The bulb does not give out a smell when in the husk, but when crushed or peeled, the enzymes in the bulb rapidly produce allicin which breaks down into allyl disulphide, so producing the characteristic garlicky, sulphurous and lingering. For the granules the dried garlic bulbs are chopped and in the powder these are ground down to a powder. For fuller details on garlic, check out Ingredientia and Wikipedia.


Garlic is used to enhance the flavours in almost all savoury recipes, but some do not like its flavours. On cooking, garlic develops a sweeter taste than it has when raw. Garlic is found in most cuisines - from the Mediterranean, Indian, Asian, Cuban mojos and Mexican - and is good in many savoury dishes including pates, terrines and sausages. I have even come across a pudding that is based on garlic, but have never dared to make it. As a good starting point to get the idea of garlic, try making aioli or garlic bread.
