I have a "sausage maker" dehydrator and have dried many pounds of garlic.

We peel the cloves and slice in a food processor using the "thin" slicing blade.

Parchment paper on the shelves in the dryer. The best temp I find is about 110-115.

Higher temps turn the garlic brown. 2 days or so and the chips are crisp. They grind well for garlic powder


The drier has a fan that runs continually and really aids in drying.

sounds like that is my problem- i did not slice te cloves at all have the whole clove in there and i think it was just too much

so i took your advice and sliced em down and it should make a big difference

awesome! I will definitely try this. I've been making my own rubs and sauces and starting to make my own spice blends such as lemon pepper and other pepper blends. I've been wanting to make some fresh garlic and onion powder so I can truly make everything fresh from scratch.


Thanks for the tips

I've smoked garlic, onions, and all kinds of peppers, then dehydrated them and then through the spice grinder. I also did the parchment paper thing in my dehydrator for the garlic and that works awesome!
