Garlic Paste

Garlic Paste

If you've spent any meaningful amount of time in the kitchen you have cooked with garlic it is one of the most versatile ingredients on earth. So versatile in fact that almost every cuisine on the planet uses it. Today well show you how to prepare smooth garlic paste. Begin by breaking apart the head of garlic. You can do this with your hands or with a knife if the head is very hard. Once you've freed the cloves carefully trim the root and then give it a tight pinch and twist an you will feel the skin loosen. Carefully use your paring knife to clean the skin away from the clove. Once the garlic cloves are all cleaned you usually need to remove the germ, as the garlic matures the germ in the center grows green and develops a bitter quality. Slice the clove in half and use the tip of your paring knife to easily remove the germ. To speed up the pace process mince your garlic into small even pieces. Start with tight horizontal cuts, then tight vertical cuts, and finally tight cross cuts. No need to dispose of the root end here. Mince it into the same size and proceed to the next clove. To turn the garlic into paste we'll use salt not only as a flavor enhancer but as an abrasive to grind the garlic mince into a smooth mash. Evenly season your garlic mince with salt. Then carefully use the side of your chef's knife to grind the salt garlic mixture into an even paste, it only takes a few minutes to turn your mince garlic into a homogenized mixture. The paste can be used in Italian salad dressings, Chinese stir fries, Spanish marinades, Moroccan tagines, its applications are limitless

    It is very close to the birds beak knife. I use them everyday. I bought a lot of these knifes. Wow that is what comes to mind when i used these knifes for the first time.

    from NY PIZZA PIE LLC. Posted on

    Good quality and price. Nice feel in the hand. Good weight. Seem to be durable after repeated auto-dishwasher cycles. If they hold up for 6 months I will be happy and reorder.

    from Best Buns, Inc Posted on

    This is a really handy knife to have around. Can easily cut through garlic to fruits and/or veggies. These are a really nice knife for peeling tasks.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    These cut fruit extremely well. I've mostly cut strawberries, lemon and carrots with this, and I have yet to have an issue with it. Sturdy little knife.

    I purchased this knife to replace some older paring knives that I had. The blade was smaller than I realized, but that was my fault and not the fault of the description. The handle is a little wider which helps me grip the knife in my hand better for use without getting cramps. The blade is very sharp and works well to peel potatoes, fruit, etc. Definitely glad I purchased two of these knives.

    I love Mercer Millennia paring knives!!! I can't express how impressed I am with their quality. They are the most comfortable paring knives I have ever used! Excellent value! Would definitely buy again! Highly recommended!

    Not very expensive and a good addition to have in your kitchen. I don't like using peelers so I usually use this knife to peel potatoes and other vegetables. It is easy to use. the blade is a good shape for such and the handle is comfortable.

    Shown in the picture compared to other common kitchen knives. This is a strangely proportioned knife, with a good ergonomic handle like the rest of the millennia range. Be careful with the blade as it is not that resistant to being bent.

    This knife isn't the most used tool in my kit, but for the money it is a knife worth having. Has been handy for peeling oranges and other fruits. Nice sized handle for a small blade.

    We bought these paring knives because they were inexpensive. They work perfectly for coring tomatoes and the price is right so it won't be costly to replace them.
