Bottled Minced Garlic

Most cooks will agree that freshly minced garlic has the best flavor. However, there are occasions when the convenience of bottled minced garlic is a good choice for recipes, especially those recipes that don't require any other slicing, mincing, or chopping. Bottled minced garlic has a stronger flavor than freshly minced. One teaspoon of bottled minced garlic is equivalent to two garlic cloves. Most bottled minced garlic is shelf stable and doesn't require refrigeration. But once you open the bottle, keep it stored in the refrigerator and check the "use by" date before adding it to a recipe.
