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

    We love these knives. Very light, durable and sharp! Way better than anything you can find at other retailers! These handles never break, not like the wooden ones!

    from Culver's Posted on

    Got this great paring knife to go along with the beautiful bright green M23930GR that I bought from Webstaurant on February 20th, quality is excellent, but I was a little disappointed because the blue color of this one is much darker than pictured. Still a wonderful deal on a very sharp knife.

    Posted on

    Incredible knife for the price. Very light weight and strong. Excellent steel quality and easy to use and clean. Just the right size for small jobs.

    from Gilpin Market Posted on

    this sharp knife is great for slicing lemons, making fruit sculptures and fits in any drawer. i hang it up on my magnet bar, but can fit anywhere! easy to use!

    from Reds Cafe Posted on

    It's an economy knife but still very sharp. We had it one day and a bartender decided to grab it and try to pry his drain cover up with it. Bent the tip. I wanted to jab it in his neck but refrained, it's not his fault he's an idiot, it's our own for giving him a job.

    from breezy point international Posted on

    We have bought several of these knives which are great to cut lemons and limes at our bar. Now we buy the various colors offered to know when they get moved to other areas of our restaurant.
