Like pretzels but not as salty, bread sticks are one of my favorite snacks. Even better, you can add all sorts of flavors to them. This time I wanted garlic bread sticks.

I'm not a huge fan of garlic powder. Most of them lose flavor before the jar is even half gone. At that point, you might as well use sawdust.

The solution? Buy dried garlic cloves or chunks and grind them yourself. You don't have to grind them each time you need them; it's fine to grind them in small quantities. The same works for ginger. The larger pieces stay potent much longer than the ground spices.
