I have a jar of pre-minced garlic in the fridge, but am not sure how much of that would equate to one clove of garlic.
About 1/4 teaspoon. It should should say on jar

If you look on the lid the conversion is usually located there.
Cloves of garlic can range in size from half a teaspoon, to half a tablespoon, and up to a tablespoon i'd say.
The decision is yours how much garlic to add, if you like garlic go a little heavier on it, otherwise stick to about teaspoon depending on the recipe.
I also reccomend mincing your own fresh garlic. If you dont want to chop it fresh every time, I have a solution. Here at Wholefoods, we sell whole peeled fresh garlic cloves and every week i throw them in my food processor to mince it and put it right back in the same container and use that all week. That way everytime i need garlic, i just grab a spoonful out of it. Sometimes I'll add a little olive oil to it to make it it last longer. Hope that helps!
I have frozen chopped garlic, and it says on the pack that a teaspoon is the equivalent of one clove. Per minced rather than chopped might be a bit less than that I guess, but not by much.
Sorry, I would toss the "packaged" garlic that has chemical preservatives in it in favor of spending the 20 seconds it takes to chop or mince fresh real garlic cloves.
It's quite a bit longer than 20 seconds and if it's ORGANIC Garlic then there aren't any preservatives.
My jar says 1/2 tsp= 1 clove. Depends how finely chopped it is.
I've always considered "clove" to be a useless measurement. Look at the variation on this page -- anywhere from 1/4 tsp. to 1 Tbs., that's a variation of 1200%
I use the conversion of 1 clove = 1 tsp. I believe Cook's Illustrated does the same.
I always add garlic according to my taste and what seems right, but I agree its probably about a 1/2 teaspoon. I'd also say that if you have the option to use fresh garlic, I would. The taste is significantly better.
Most cloves are different sizes! A teaspoon would be a sufficient guide per recipe listing of "clove". Unless your taste buds disagree. This can also depend on how much you like or dislike garlic. I love it. So a tsp for me would become a tbsp!!
I think it's about 1/4 a teaspoon or one full teaspoon
I always go with two tsp is one clove... But then again when I cook and it says "add two cloves garlic" I always like to add a few more for good measure because I love garlic!
The jar says 1/2 a teaspoon equals on clove.
You can never have to much garlic.
The ONLY correct answer isHowever much you want it to be. There is almost no such thing as too much garlic
OK, people. Are u ready for this?? How about taking a spoon from the silverware drawer...and filling it with minced garlic. That, my friends, is a teaspoon of minced garlic!! How lazy have we become?!

I don't think you read the question correctly.
It is usually 1/2 teaspoon
Recipe writing is an inexact process, especially if you want to keep it short enough that anyone will read it. They're full of things like cloves of garlic, half onions etc. that you just have to guess at an average sized piece of garlic. Then there are things like "a cup of basil leaves" that could be anything from two leaves to a quarter pound, or the notorious "cup of flour" that depends entirely on how you measure it. Sometimes, you just have to fall back on your own taste and experience.
