Do you like adding garlic to every recipe you make. We'll you are definitely not alone. Learning how to mince garlic will take your love for garlic to the next level. This homemade solution will keep you away from the store bought variety, and will show how to create the perfect minced garlic effortlessly.
Minced garlic is used so often in cooking it has become easy to just buy it in the jar. While we appreciate the convenience of jarred - you can't beat the taste and quality of fresh! We have a trick to make opening and mincing these tasty spices much easier and less time consuming. First, start by peeling the outer layer of the garlic and removing a bulb. With a large kitchen knife, slice the root end off. Place the wide end of the knife on the top of the garlic bulb and gently press down so you break open the skin. Instead of then trying to mince with a knife (which can truly be a chore) try running the cloves over a micro plane to easily puree them into a pulp. Remember, the smaller the garlic is cut, the more the flavor you enjoy!
