History of frozen garlic purée
The term “puree” is derived from an Old French word meaning “refined,” which comes from an old Latin word meaning “pure” -- our frozen garlic puree is as pure as it gets with no additional ingredients on our label. Some purees that consumers may be very familiar with and use in their own homes include pimento (made of olives) and hummus (made of chickpeas).
