Garlic is native to Asia, but numerous cultivars are now grown commercially all over the world and in every US state but Alaska. Like its botanical cousins, onion, leek, shallot and chive, garlic is the perfect partner to tomato-based foods.

Dried, minced garlic is a great way to enjoy fresh garlic flavor in foods and—as an added bonus—has a long shelf life.

Garlic is a perennial herb that is closely related to chives, onion and leek. It is commonly used in Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American and North African cuisines. Although it is appreciated by most English cooks today, the herb was not generally used for culinary purposes in that part of the world until the 16th century. In fact, the herbalists considered the herb a “rustic's theriac,” meaning a heal-all.

Minced garlic is easy to use and keeps a long time, if properly stored. Use it in cooking as you would fresh minced garlic.
