Great value and taste - a super fridge standby.
This paste is really useful, last for ages in a fridge and is very good value, with no waste. I much prefer it to other brands who, for example, preserve their garlic in vinegar. In a favourite recipe, my partner insisted I use fresh garlic—when I made it, she said, "I told you it would be best with fresh!" ... I didn't have the heart to tell her I'd used the paste after all...
Great paste, so much easier than the tubes or the real thing!
I like it, because its saving time.
Too sweet. Contains a lot of sugar.
Careful! It's sweet. The 2nd ingredient is sugar and if your recipe doesn't call for sugar then this garlic paste will make your dish significantly sweeter. I now only use it in recipes that call for a teaspoon of sugar and this garlic paste replaces the sugar.
A must for your store cupboard.
It may be lazy, but it's a lot easier than fresh garlic and I use jars of it. I use it just the same as fresh garlic, in stews, soups, on steaks, in casseroles. Brilliant, can't recommend it enough.
Doesn't smell or taste like garlic
Doesn't taste like fresh garlic at all. Not sure if it was my batch, as other reviews are so positive, but I absolutely couldn't use it unfortunately.
These poor garlic cloves :(
Terrible. Drowning in sugar taste, hardly any taste of garlic. Why put sugar in garlic paste? Whyyyyy?
Convenient condiment, great substitute for fresh g
Convenient condiment, great substitute for fresh garlic that may start sprouting after forgetting them for a few days.
Lovely garlic , very garlicky, great easy way to
Lovely garlic , very garlicky, great easy way to add to all sorts cooking . I put a teaspoon in frying pan with olive oil, butter , garlic black pepper and Cajun seasoning to fry mushrooms and fresh tomatoes . Jar is hard to open so I stab the lid with small knife to release pressure then put piece of sticky tape over hole to keep fresh , find this works easily .
