Usually I'm one to jump to new products, but the pre-packaged minced garlic is one that I've always been skeptical of. Finally today I decided to bite the bullet and try it out.
In my years of avoidance, my number one reason was taste, I expected the pre-packaged minced garlic to have a funny taste or scent.
Today when making my soup, I added in one teaspoon (2 cloves) and the results...no harm done. Everything tasted alright. And I saved some time and clean up. I think I'll keep this on hand for the quick garlic needs...but certainly won't give up the real deal anytime soon.
