The Biggest Mistake You're Making With Jarred Garlic, According To TikTok
By Elizabeth Pak
People who love garlic but don't want to peel those tiny cloves one by one or have their fingers smelling like garlic for days may opt for a jar of pre-minced garlic, but it isn’t as potent as the fresh stuff. TikTok has addressed this issue and the fix will save you a great deal of time, money, and energy.
Jarred garlic is pasteurized, which means it will never compare to the real thing, as much of the flavor gets drowned out in the pasteurization process. Moreover, once you open the jar, the garlic will oxidize, taking a toll on its taste and becoming less fresh over time.
TikTok user @stoveandgarden says that you can easily avoid this issue by doubling the amount of garlic the recipe requires if you opt for jarred garlic. By doing this, you won't sacrifice the potency the recipe intended the garlic to have.
