How to Dehydrate Garlic:

Dehydrated garlic is a must have in your food storage! You can grind to use in salt or chop up in fun recipes (see our spicy pickles recipe video below). Dehydrated garlic will last years if stored properly! No refrigeration needed.


  • Peel the outer covering of the garlic bulb, then break away individual cloves.
  • Peel each clove by cutting a small piece of the end off, then with moderate force hit the clove with the side of a knife. This will allow the papery coating of the clove to peel away easily.
  • Once peeled, slice into 1/8 inch slices then spread onto dehydrator tray.
  • Dehydrate at 125 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 hours
  • Store in a vacuum and Mylar bag or jar with oxygen pack

Dryness Check:

Properly dehydrated garlic slices will feel dry to the touch. It can be easily cut with scissors or ground in a blender. If yours does not feel this way, just put it back in the dehydrator for a few more hours!

Other Tips:

You can also grind your dehydrated garlic in a blender into a fine powder to add to salt (see picture below) or other dry homemade custom seasonings. Dehydrated garlic is not easily crushed with a mortar pestle, but a blender works well.
