Canning Minced Fresh Garlic

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

Most people would prefer to just use dry garlic or even the homemade garlic powder we occasionally make in our kitchen. However, dried never quite tastes the same as fresh garlic. So here is the another solution I found to this problem, you simply can your minced garlic.

It is quite labor intensive, but if you plan ahead you may only need to this once or twice a year. In order to this, you are going to need a couple of pounds of fresh garlic, which is never an issue for us as we grow it in our garden. There’s another method that used a water bath canner, however you won’t be needing any special canning equipment today.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh garlic
  • meat grinder
  • sea salt
  • canola oil
  • knife
  • olive oil (optional)
  • mason jars with lids

Set aside some time and get yourself comfortable before you take on the removing the paper and separating the cloves from your garlic. If your naked cloves have any blemishes, remove those as well as the little nubs that are found on the ends. Pull out your meat grinder, and slowly mince your garlic feeding a few cloves at a time.

This is yet another tedious task, I usually just play some really good happy music and bounce around the kitchen. Mix in the oil and the sea, and then fill your jars with your minced garlic. Start with a little oil, then add minced garlic until about half an inch from the top then add more oil and a little sea salt. Screw on the lids and store your jars away in a cool dry place.
