How Many Teaspoons of Minced Garlic Equals One Clove?

You’re preparing dinner, and the recipe you’re following calls for 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. You look at the head of garlic on your counter and wonder how many you should cut up. Alternatively, you have a jar of pre-minced garlic, and your recipe calls for one clove of minced garlic. While there might be some variations based on the size of the cloves of garlic, generally speaking, one clove will give you 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic.
