Truly aweful, with nasty taste and smell
I am used to using fresh garlic and just thought I'd give this a try but was disappointed. The vinegar is far too overpowering. Even after rinsing and drying before frying, the whole meal still tasted of vinegar and only barely tasted of garlic, even though I used double the quantity that I would normally use with fresh.
Useful time saver
I use this all the time but it does taste of vinegar so I put it in a tea strainer and run cold water through it before adding!
Not very good, even for lazy people.
As others have mentioned, the vinegar does not fry off. Used this for the first time in a meal I cook weekly, I fried the garlic with onions for the base of the meal's sauce, but there was a noticably sour tang to the smell and taste of the finished meal. Tried a couple of other meals and had the same result. I can only presume the vinegar remains infused within the garlic so of course it won't all evaporate when frying. This stuff might be OK if you only need a tiny amount in your recipe but if you need half a dozen cloves worth, or more, you won't escape the vinegar.
Lazy, simple gut healthy ingredients
I like adding it to my cooking or making garlic butter or yoghurt with it. I like that it’s only in white vinegar to preserve it, making it natural and healthy for the gut. Tip: you can use of fork to collect less vinegar or simply rinse with a mini sieve or something to get rid of the vinegar if you like, I don’t get the people complaining about the vinegar since it’s simply the preservative for such a product to exist.
I was genuinely shocked by how awful this is. The smell was horrendous, of strong vinegar and I don't know what else. I cooked it believing the vinegar would evaporate, but it didn't. I don't know how something so awful can be produced. It went straight in the bin.
Less mess and good flavour.
I find this so easy to use and store. No messing about and when stored in the fridge with the lid on, no odour. I cannot tell any difference when using this or the fresh garlic, so use this as often as I can when cooking to save the mess.
simple to use and much easier with same results as
simple to use and much easier with same results as freshh garlic
Best garlic ever!
Fantastic product! The best way to have garlic. I use it in all cooking, chilli’s, Chinese, and slow cooking...I don’t taste vinegar...what are you all doing? It keeps for ages and has more garlic than all other preparations! I will never switch! Join me please😊
Does NOT taste like vinegar when cooked!!!!!
No, you don't taste/smell the vinegar when it's cooked. Maybe if you used it "raw" ie in Ceasar salad, garlic bread you might - but I've never had a problem using it in cooking, it's lovely and garlicky! Been using for years, as hate faffing about with fresh garlic and trying to clean off hands or scrape bits out of a garlic press.
i FEEL VERY LAZY
so easy to have it all prepared for instant use
