History of Garlic

For over 5,000 years, garlic has been used for everything from medicine and food to aphrodisiacs to money. It is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world and is believed to be a native plant of Central Asia, South Asia or Siberia. In Ancient Egypt, the spice was so popular as payment for laborers, that shortages in garlic would halt production on pyramids.

Garlic has long been a part of the cuisine of Central and East Asia, but it wasn’t widely used in the rest of the world until trade brought it to Europe and the Americas. From then on, garlic was adopted as a pungent and flavorful addition to ethnic European dishes, including Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and more. In fact, garlic in the U.S. is so popular that consumption has more than tripled since the 1940s, as more savory dishes are being adopted and consumed.
