For as easy as garlic salt is to make, it’s silly how much it costs at the store. Here’s how to make your own in minutes.

Homemade Garlic Salt Recipe

What You’ll Need:

  • Table salt or Kosher salt
  • Garlic powder or granulated garlic
  • Dried Parsley (optional)

What You Do:

Mix together three parts salt and one part garlic. If you prefer a coarse garlic salt, use Kosher salt and granulated garlic. If you prefer a smooth garlic salt, use table salt and garlic powder.

To make 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp): Combine three Tablespoons salt and one Tablespoon garlic.
To make one cup: Combine 3/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup garlic.

Jar of Homemade Garlic Salt

Store your homemade garlic salt in an air-tight container. Make sure you label it, so you’ll know what it is, the next time you come across it in your pantry.

Some commercial garlic salt blends also contain dried parsley. If you’d like to include this in yours, just add one part parsley to the mix.

How to Use Minced Garlic to Make Garlic Salt

If you don’t have any garlic powder or granulated garlic, you can also use minced garlic to whip up a quick batch of garlic salt.

To make one teaspoon: Combine 3/4 tsp salt and two cloves of minced garlic.
To make one Tablespoon: Combine 2-1/4 tsp salt and six cloves of minced garlic.

This garlic salt needs to be used right away. It isn’t shelf-stable, since it’s made with fresh garlic.

How to Make Garlic Salt From Fresh Garlic

Growing your own garlic, or just have a lot of fresh garlic on hand? Use some of it to make your own shelf-stable garlic salt from scratch. It’s easy.

Just peel 1/2 cup of garlic cloves (about four bulbs worth).

Then, place them in a food processor, with one cup of salt.

Pulse, until the garlic is minced, and the mixture is the consistency of wet sand.

Then, spread your garlic salt out on a baking sheet, and dry it in a 175 degree oven for one hour, or until it feels dry to the touch.

Transfer the mixture to a clean food processor, and pulse, until you’re satisfied with the consistency. Then, store it in an air-tight container.
