There are four easy steps to make homemade garlic powder – Peeling, Slicing, Drying, and Grinding.

How to peel garlic easily? One of the easiest ways to peel garlic. First, separate the cloves of garlic. Second, submerge the garlic cloves in a bowl of warm water (not boiled) and let them sit for 15 minutes.

The heat will easily get rid of the tight skin of the garlic. Remove the cloves from the water and the skins should pop off more easily.

How to slice garlic ? Using a sharp knife, cut your cloves into thin slices. Try to keep the slices all the same thickness, so they cook evenly.

How to roast or dry garlic ? Put garlic slices on the baking tray and out tray in the microwave to dry the garlic. Microwave garlic (250 gms) high power for 18 minutes.

Stir and shake the pan every 2 minutes and continue cooking until it crumbles easily in your hand. Watch it closely, because garlic goes from dry to burned quickly.

How to grind garlic ? Let the dry cloves cool completely then place them into dry blender or food processor and grind it into a fine powder.

Wait for 2 minutes or tap the lid of the grinder after processing for the powder to settle before you open the grinder’s lid.

How to store garlic powder? Transfer the dry powder to a glass jar or other lidded container and store it in a cool dark place. Homemade garlic powder stays good for up to 6 months when keep in a refrigerator.
