Garlic Salt


  • About 1/4 cup of garlic cloves, usually about 1 1/2 heads of garlic
  • One cup of salt


  1. Peel the garlic cloves and place in a food processor. Add the salt, preferably Kosher salt. The iodine and other minerals in table salt or Celtic sea salt can cause the garlic to discolor.
  2. Process the garlic and salt mixture for about 20 seconds until it reaches the consistency of sand.
  3. Spread the mixture on parchment or a silicone baking mat and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a 180-degree oven for about an hour, until the mixture is dry and crisp. Use the oven heat to dry out the garlic slowly, but avoid browning it.
  5. Add the garlic salt back into the food processor and pulse it a few times until it resembles the texture of cornmeal.
  6. Store the mixture in an air-tight jar in a cool, dry place. Label and date your garlic salt, and discard any remainder after three months.
