How-To Peel and Mince Garlic


Chef Halee Raff teaches you how to peel and mince garlic in just a few easy steps. You'll want to start by cutting the hard end of the garlic and then crushing each clove with the flat part of your knife. Using your free hand, apply pressure to the tip of the knife so that it doesn't leave the cutting board. This helps you get a more precise slice as you roll the knife through and cut the garlic. Watch Chef Halee Raff's How-To above to follow along and learn the easiest way to peel and mince garlic.
