One day while browsing the spice section at the grocery store, I came across bottled minced garlic - and it wasn't of the dried variety! I couldn't believe it, the answer to my prayers right there in front of me! Clearly I snapped it up to try it out, and not to sound like an infomercial or anything but I'm glad I did. Now every time I need '1 tsp of minced garlic' I just pop my measuring spoon into the jar easy-peasy, it's that simple! No mess, no clean up, just the way I like it :)
Below is the No Name Brand of Garlic I purchased, there are other brands available as well.
**Note: Minced ginger exists as well**
