Let’s face it, we are a bit skeptical about how store-bought products are made with all the unfamiliar ingredients listed at the back of the product. This is why it is much healthier to replace store-bought ingredients with healthier homemade versions. This recipe was shared with us by Homesteading Family on YouTube. It is an easy and healthy alternative to store-bought garlic salt. Trust me, I agree with her. You’ll want to throw out your store-bought one after this!



  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Dried parsley


For the garlic, remove the main peels and break up the cloves.

Then, slice off the stems of each bud and crunch them using one side of the knife. Repeat and place all the crushed garlic in a container. Seal the container with a tight lid and shake vigorously to remove the peels for about 30 seconds. Next, transfer them to a cookie sheet or a dehydrated tray, pull off the skins easily, and discard them.

Place the tray in the dehydrator and leave it to dry for 10–12 hours at 125F.

When done, transfer the dried garlic to a coffee grinder and grind until it turns into a fine powder.  To turn your garlic powder into garlic salt, you need 3 parts of salt for every part of garlic. Add 3 parts of salt, 1 part of garlic powder, and 1 part of dried parsley to a bowl.

Hand mix all the ingredients until well combined.

Additional recipe: thoroughly wash 5 red potatoes and bring to a boil for about 15 minutes.

Carefully remove them from the heat and transfer each potato to a lined baking sheet using tongs. Smash each potato using a fork and place thin butter slices on top of each.

Sprinkle in a generous amount of your homemade garlic salt powder.

Let it bake in the oven just until the potatoes turn light brown and transfer them to a platter.
