Food52er Sean,Murray turned to the Food52 Hotline for a simple clove-to-teaspoon conversion for garlic. As it turns out, it’s not that simple:

Using Fresh Garlic (recommended by us, and lots of opinionated Food52ers!)

  • In the Food52 test kitchen, we go by the guesstimation that a medium-sized clove equates to a half teaspoon once minced. ChefOno is a little more generous, and assumes one teaspoon.
  • Looking for the pungent flavor of fresh garlic with the convenience of the jarred kind? A Whole Foods staff member recommends peeling a handful of cloves and mincing them in a food processor. Store the minced garlic in an airtight container in the fridge, and you’ll have fresh, prepped garlic on hand to use throughout the week.

Using Pre-Packaged Minced Garlic

  • The amount of packaged, minced garlic needed to make up for one clove depends on how finely minced the garlic is. Because each brand varies, conversion amounts are usually listed on the label or lid of the individual jar. If not, assume one-quarter to one teaspoon of minced garlic roughly equates to a whole clove. As this is a wide range, ATG117 recommends tasting as you go and adjusting accordingly.

As sheilag points out, the amount of garlic used in a recipe ultimately depends on taste. Garlic fans like Sara,Comerford and Bob Likes to Cook may throw in an extra clove, while those who prefer a more mellow dish may opt to only add a sprinkle. So add gradually, taste often, and you’ll be able to build flavor to your liking every time.
