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

Place the blade of the knife on the flat surface with the edge facing away from your body. Flip the knife and wipe the other side of the blade as well. Dip the knife in the solution and then take it out. Using a cloth soaked in the hot water solution, scrub the blade of the knife. Do it very lightly to prevent scratches. After you have removed visible dirt from the blade of your knife, clean the handle with soapy water. Rinse the knife thoroughly under running water. Dry the knife by using a clean dishtowel. Wash kitchen knives immediately after using them so that the food does not dry on their blades. It is never accepted to place your knife in a drawer without a plastic guard. Make sure that knives lying on flat surfaces are never covered with towels or napkins. After handling a knife, lay it down in a clear area with the blade and point away from the body and away from the edge of the table or cutting area. A knife guard is a rigged plastic sleeve that fully encloses the blade. A glass knife block sits on the counter offering convenient access when working and when safely putting knives away. A magnetic bar is a wall mounted magnetic bar design to hold knives firmly in place.

Grasp the knife by the handle allowing your thumb and index finger to rest on the blade for support. Before handling a knife, put a light to medium duty cut resistant glove on the hand opposite of the hand that holds the knife. The glove will stay on the hand until the knife has been cleaned and properly stored. Use the right knife for the right job. Keep it sharp.

    Nice little knife - inexpensive not sure really if I would re buy seems dull after washing it in the dishwasher but I like it
    These are the best knives to peel potatoes with!! The only knives I use to peel potatoes since I purchased these! They are light and comfortable in your hands.
    We use the color coded handles to organize our kitchen and keep certain colors in specific sections. Great quality for the price for the average kitchen use.
    Reasons why you need a green knife: It stands out among other utensils to remind you that it's sharp, and can harm you. Green's your favorite color. Or, more practically, it's a color-coding system that the health department loves to avoid cross contamination and allergens. This is a nice, sharp, inexpensive knife perfect for small tasks. The green is bright and cheerful, and the knife is easy to clean.
    I have been using this knife for years also and it is a good knife for the quality and the price. Needs to be sharpened like all other knives
    These knifes were great at the beginning but somehow several of the blades got chips in them making them dangerous to use! The Victorinox I bought at the same time held up better
    Thank you for your review, Meir! We are sorry this Mercer Culinary M23930GR Millennia 3 inch Paring Knife with Green Handle has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    I ordered these to match the green mercer chef knives I purchased. They were used at a kids cooking camp. They worked perfect, very sharp!
    This paring knife is the right size for small more precise cutting jobs in the kitchen, such as dicing and peeling fruit. Great product and price!
    This is an excellent knife for color coding in any restaurant. It is very well made and the handle will not slip from your hands. The blade is very sharp right out of the package and it stays sharp even with a lot of use. I would recommend this.
    This is not the best pairing knife we have ever used however it is very well priced and works great. The 3 inch blade size is great for precision projects. That handled features a no slip grip and comes in the color green.
    Perfect for the small jobs of paring apples or tomatoes. The green handles make them easy to find if they are misplaced in drawers and they have a good grip.
    This is a really great brand of nice I'm very happy with my 3 inch long perry knife I really like the green color of the handle last long time very sharp
    This knife does a great job slicing fruits and vegetables and it stays sharp for a long time. The handle is comfortable and the knife is made very well. The color is great for color coordinating where the knife should go.
    Love these Mercer knives. Super sharp and non-slip handles work great. What sold me was the cool colors. Seems like they will last a long time.
    I liked these merker colorful paring knives. It does the job and it makes my kitchen enjoyable. I highly recommend to buy all colors together
    Love these knives. They are the perfect size for cutting fruit. The best part are the color choices. We chose one color to define where the knives belong, i.e., bar area, prep area, line cooking, etc.
    This a bright blade that cuts very well. This is lightweight and easily coded to different tasks. The grip is comfortable and easy to control
    I absolutely love this paring knife. It fits well in your wrist and is very handy. It is also very sharp. Happy with the purchase.
    I bought this knife to cut ginger and small fruits, it is a great size with a comfortable handle. It's sharp and I love the color!
    I love these knives. The are inexpensive, but decent quality, well balanced, and they hold a nice sharp edge. I operate a mobile personal chef service and the bright green color means that they won't be easily left behind at a job-site.
