This is a simple way to make fresh garlic salt at home, and it keeps for a long time.

Ingredients.........




8 - 10 Garlic bulbs
2 - 3 Cups table salt

The garlic should be very firm and not have any green shoots starting.
Break the bulbs into cloves and cut away the bottoms.
Crush cloves slightly and remove the skins.
Finely chop the garlic and mix with the salt.
But reserve half a cup of salt for later.

I use glass pans to spead the salt and garlic onto. (do not grease)
Either a glass baking pan or the glass piece in the bottom of the microwave.
Turn your oven to the lowest setting about 125 - 150 F.
The garlic and salt sit in the oven to dry for up to 6 hours.

Just remember to stir the mixture every 15 - 30 minutes so that it all dries.

After the mixture is completely dry and light tan in colour, let cool.
Put the dry mixture into the food processor for a few minutes to break up the garlic to almost a powder, but not quite. Add another half cup salt.

Store in a tightly sealed container in a cool dark place to maximize flavour over time.

Mine's a Silex.



EDIT: Yeah, 8-10 bulbs. It makes a few cups of garlic salt, and it stores very well, so you don't have to make it very often.
You can use up to 4 cups of salt if you have large bulbs of garlic.

If you have a food dehydrator. Peel the cloves and put em in the dehydrator whole until they are brittle. The run through the food processor. Leave alone and you've got garlic powder mix with salt and you've got garlic salt.
