Garlic is usually peeled before use in recipes. Among the exceptions are roasted garlic bulbs and the famous dish, Chicken Braised with 40 Cloves of Garlic in which unpeeled garlic cloves are braised with chicken in a broth until they become sweet and butter-soft.
Crushing, chopping, pressing or pureeing garlic releases more of its essential oils and provides a sharper, more assertive flavor than slicing or leaving it whole.
Garlic is readily available in forms other than fresh.
Dehydrated garlic flakes (sometimes referred to as instant garlic ) are slices or bits of garlic that must be reconstituted before using (unless added to a liquid-based dish, such as soup or stew).
When dehydrated garlic flakes are ground, the result is garlic powder. Garlic salt is garlic powder blended with salt and a moisture-absorbing agent. Garlic extract and garlic juice are derived from pressed garlic cloves.
Garlic is usually found in the produce section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
Garlic is a member of the Vegetables and Vegetable Products US Department of Agriculture nutritional food group.
