Mincing Garlic

Step 1

Trim the root end from each garlic clove.

Step 2

Crush the clove with the side of a knife to loosen the skin. Be sure the edge of the knife is facing away from you.

Step 3

Peel off the skin.

Step 4

For a very even mince, cut the clove into thin slices first.

Step 5

Then line up the slices in a row so you can cut across the slices.

Step 6

Repeat with all the cloves and finally rock your knife over the chopped garlic until all of it is minced as finely as you want.
