Common garlic, also known as Poor Man's Treacle and Russian Penicillin, is widely used in virtually every cuisine in the world. The vegetable and herb has been around for so long that it’s difficult to say for certain where it originated or when it was first unearthed, although it is like a native of Asia. Beyond the fresh garlic thwarting vampires and offending anyone in close proximity after eating a bulb or two, granulated and powdered garlic affords flavor with a reduced “bite” and a long shelf life without refrigeration.

Garlic, affectionately known as "the stinking rose," is a member of the onion family that is native to central and southwestern Asia. Although the leaves and flowers of the plant are edible the real prize is the mature bulb, which is separated into multiple "cloves."
Granulated garlic is a convenient way to get full-bodied garlic flavor into soups, stews and other foods.
