Step 1: Release cloves Pull away the cloves from the bulb of garlic. Step 2: Peel the skin Peel the skin from the individual cloves by cutting off the stem and then pressing down on the clove with a side of a knife blade. Remove the skin after it releases. Step 3: Smash the clove Smash the peeled clove with the side of the knife to start to break it apart. Step 4: Rock a knife Rock the blade of a large knife back and forth quickly across the smashed garlic, using your free hand to steady the top of your blade. Continue chopping until the garlic is minced. Tip Add salt to the garlic before you chop. Salt acts as an abrasive and can help the garlic break down more easily. Step 5: Do it the easy way Use a garlic press to save time. Peel the cloves and pass them through the press, using a knife to trim away any garlic that clings. A microplane grater can also work wonders, allowing you to grate tiny pieces of garlic in no time. Did You Know?
