Dried chopped garlic pieces are a convenient way to add the flavor and aroma of garlic to your stews or soup dishes. These dried garlic bits will rehydrate when cooked with liquids—or foodstuffs with a decent moisture content—and will release their savory, pungent flavors into your dish. Try these in broths or cooked with rice.
Savory, pungent, slightly spicy
Aroma is bright, savory, lingering and complex.
Light yellow-to-golden hued nuggets
Use dried chopped garlic pieces in broths, soups, stews, or sauces where the moisture of the dish will allow for the pieces to rehydrate and release their flavor and aroma.
PROCESSING / FORM
If you fry these pieces of dried garlic in oil, they won't rehydrate well. They will instead brown and harden. For frying, smaller dried garlic pieces or powder are recommended.
