Homemade Garlic Powder





  1. Break up the garlic bulbs and remove all the garlic peels.*
  2. Remove the ends and any blemishes that are on the garlic.
  3. Slice the garlic. (This does not have to be thin, but you want the slices to be around the same size.)
  4. Place the sliced garlic on the racks of your dehydrator, making sure not to overlap them. (Perfect job for a toddler!)
  5. Turn dehydrator on 125 degrees and let dry for about 10-12 hours or until the garlic is completely dry.
  6. Take your garlic slices and blend or grind in a high power device into a fine powder.**
  7. Place in jars.


* This is by far the most time consuming part. However, if your kids are like mine, you can get this done with much speed and their help. Give each a child a bowl, put the pile of garlic between them and have them see who can fill their bowl the fastest. It works every time here.

** If you don't have a grinder or blender that works well enough, leave the garlic as slices! I love adding this to soup and gravies. I also chop the dried slices and throw them into stir fry dishes. They are nice to have on hand.
