Household Hints - Chopping & Peeling Garlic Made Easy
Here are a few hints for all of you garlic lovers out there, to make peeling and chopping garlic a lot easier.
- To make it easier to chop garlic, if you liberally sprinkle the cutting board with salt, this will keep the garlic from sticking to your knife. Be sure to adjust your recipe to take into account the salt you have added to the garlic.
- To peel garlic, either smash the clove of garlic with the side of your chef's knife OR use a handy little plastic garlic peeler tube. All you do is insert the clove of garlic in, roll it around using the palm of your hand, and out pops the peel and the peeled garlic. Really easy!
- There are new handy little food choppers available that do all the work of chopping garlic for you. One popular model is called the Alligator Mini.
- A good garlic press takes away all the work of chopping garlic - just insert a peeled clove of garlic and press for perfectly minced fresh garlic!
