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

    great knives paring sharp knife pack price quality quickly handle

    The Mercer 3" paring knife 3 pack is a great deal. Since paring knives are so useful for multiple tasks, having a 3 pack makes sure there is always one around to use.

    These paring knives are very good. The blade stays sharp for a decent amount of usage and its easy to sharpen. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because the handles are not heat resistant. Once in a while an employee of mine makes a mistake and leaves it by an open flame and they melt then need to be thrown away. But non the less, for the price, I highly recommend.

    This paring knife is good quality and it holds up well. It's a great size and is comfortable and durable. Overall it's a great knife.

    Fantastic paring knife. It has a razor sharp blade that allows you to cut precisely and quickly. Perfect for soft fruits too, such as strawberry and melon

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    This paring knife is very sharp, I especially love to use it when opening vanilla beans to make homemade vanilla extract. Glad that it comes in set of three.


    These are super nice knives with a razor sharp blade. Great for a number of uses. Perfect size and the fact they are cheap is great!

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    One of the best paring knives I've ever used and it didn't cost a fortune to get this quality. Fits my hand great not sure if it's the shape of the handle or the whole knife but for some reason with my small hands when using other paring knives my fingers always slide onto the top of the knife and when I move them back onto the handle I don't seem to have the proper leverage and this wears out your hand quickly. Also they are very sharp and thin but strong, and they stay sharp for a long time. So this makes it a breeze to cut just about anything!

    Great knives, fit beautifully in the hand and extremely sharp -- great idea to do in 3/pack -- wish the colors were packed this way as well.. When one is "lost" in the kitchen, we all go looking for it as they have quickly become a favorite for us. We've taken to buying several at a time!

    from General Conference Employee Food Service Posted on

    This is a great little economical set of paring knives. We have been using them in our kitchen and have found them to be adequate for a number of different cutting tasks. Easy to clean and and store.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    This is a great price for these quality knives and they work well for cutting smaller peppers, cutting lemons and limes and they sharpen easily and quickly. We will definitely purchase again as needed.

    from Freebirds World Burrito Posted on

    These are great for all the small jobs that come up during breakfast/lunch service in our coffee shop. The price is great and they've stayed sharp and haven't bent.

    My whole bakery needed new all purpose pairing knives and I've used these in the past, so when I saw a 3 pack of these at such a great price, I couldn't turn it down! They are super sharp! (I found out the hard way on that one, be careful!) They are also super economical, I bought enough for all of my co-workers in the bakery with enough for spares! Highly recommend!

    I have purchased a few knives from Mercer now and have been impressed with the quality of their products and the price can't be beat.
