Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Garlic is from the species, Allium Sativum and has two primary subspecies - hardneck garlic, Allium Sativum variety Ophioscorodon, and softneck garlic Allium Sativum variety Sativum. Hardneck garlics were the original garlics while softneck garlics were developed or cultivated over the centuries by growers from the original hardnecks through a process of selective breeding.
Garlic is closely related to the chives, onions, leeks and shallots.
Garlic is found in just about every cuisine, but its plays a more prominent role in Central and South American, Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, Mexican and Southeast Asian cuisines. While we know that nothing compares to fresh garlic that doesn't mean that dehydrated garlic shouldn't play a vital role in your kitchen. In fact since the 1990's garlic consumption in the US is up over 1,000% to more than 3.5 lbs. consumed by each person per year, and of all that consumed garlic, more than 75% of it is in the dehydrated form.
Our Garlic Powder is perfect if you have a recipe where garlic flavor, but not texture or bulk are needed. Garlic Powder also lasts for a long time (some folks will say up to 2-3 years although we still prefer to replace it every 6-12 months) and just a little bit will go a long way. Made from pure dehydrated garlic our garlic powder has no preservatives or anti-caking agents.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
