  • Cut of the root end of the cloves with knife.
  • Then peel the individual cloves by pressing down on clove with side of your knife.
  • Do not press too hard – you can smash the clove and it will mix with the skin.
  • The older the clove, the easier the skin releases. Or you can use garlic peeler

To mince garlic with a knife, slice the clove in one direction, then turn it.
