I always like to add boiling water to dried garlic granules then put them in oil. Does it need refrigeration? Since it is not fresh garlic. Just curious because I have read a lot of questions and answers here and they are all for fresh garlic.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I've read that the risks are the same for dried as with fresh... I'd err on the safe side and refrigerate it.
Why not mince up a bag of garlic cloves, gently heat in olive oil in a pan until the oil takes on some of the garlic flavor (but don't let it brown) then pour all into a jar for the fridge? Great for flavoring sautes...
