Choosing: Garlic powder takes time to expire so you don't have to worry about it. Just don't buy garlic powder with a broken seal or container.
Buying: You can buy garlic powder at any local grocery store or supermarkets.
Procuring: Garlic is a bulb, similar to onions. The bulb is underground and the green top is above ground. To harvest, you dig up the bulbs.
Preparation and Use
DO NOT take garlic powder as a complete substitute for a real garlic. Although they have the same flavor, garlic powder cannot produce the texture, taste or aroma derived from cloves from a garlic bulb.
Conserving and Storing
Store tightly closed container in a cool, dry place. Garlic powder can be kept for several years, but be aware that the amount of flavor it will deliver will diminish over time.
