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

    This mercer paring knife is a great paring knife for the price. The blade came sharp out of the box and the variety of colors makes it easy to keep track of the knives from station to station. Much better value than the other commercial knife lines out there.

    This knife has a good grip and is easy to use. The bright color makes it easy to see and makes it safer. The blade stays sharp after hard use. Great product!

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    For the price, this knife is a steal. It's very sharp when you receive it, so there's no need to sharpen it before use. The handle is comfortable, and the bright color makes it stand out among my other knives. I have zero complaints.

    Mercer M23930GR Millennia Primary4 3" Paring Knife with Green Handle....... this is great knife buy one buy two just buy it now love it...just buy

    from desalvo's Posted on

    These knives are so sharp and cut vegetables so beautifully! I bought the green handle to designate this knife for vegetables only. We have some food restrictions we need to adhere by, and the color options are well suited for our needs. I only wish that there was a cover for this knife. Great value!

    Just to satisfy my curiosity, I tested six different knives to diagonally cut some raw celery stalks. This one was clearly the best, effortlessly making paper-thin slices that I could see through. After two months of daily use, it's still razor sharp. The green one I got is exactly the glowing color in the picture. I also got the blue one, and it's much darker than pictured. If you know anybody who likes to cook, these nicely-packaged knives would make great little gifts.

    Nice little paring knife it is a quality knife and at a great price point. I hate to admit but the little knives always seem to be the ones that come up "missing' and it hurts less to replace them if i have to but also helps looking for the colored handle in the trash.

    from youth with a mission Posted on

    Very good quality knives with sharp blades. We love the many different colored handles. We use different colors for different uses. Green is for veggies.

    from Gilpin Market Posted on

    Our paring knives seem to grow legs and walk away. At this price we can stock up and have plenty on hand no matter how may go missing.

    from Miss Debs Posted on

    These three inch pairing knives are great! The arrive very sharp and keep a good edge and with a quick run on the steel they are back to sharp again. We like having the different colors to keep from cross contamination with cooked/ raw ingredients

    from Minden Meat and Deli Posted on

    These paring knives are outstanding. They are very sharp when they arrive, and hold their edge well even after some abuse. Every one of these paring knives I own has survived years of going through the dishwasher in horrible hard water, and not one has a rust stain! Even though some of the butter knives from my high-quality flatware set have developed rust stains, these inexpensive paring knives have not. I am very pleased with these!

    This mercer 3' paring knife is the knife that is grabed first off of the magnetic knife rack . Our staff knows that it will be sharp and ready to go.

    from Ranch House Kitchen Posted on

    The thin blade makes this knife ideal for garnishing or cutting small vegetables. The knife is light and has a full size handle which I feel is a big plus in a pairing knife.

    Posted on

    Very good quality knife at a reasonable, economical price. We've used it for several weeks and it is holding its edge very well. The bright color makes it easier to find than other items in the kitchen.
