Peeling and Cutting Garlic

Peeling for Slicing:
Place a clove inside a garlic peeler, a special rubber tube made for this purpose; roll back and forth to remove skin.

Hold a peeled clove, flat side down, in place with one hand (curve fingers inward). Carefully slice very thinly with a sharp knife.

Peeling for Chopping:
Holding the blade of a large knife flat on top of clove, press firmly until skin splits. Pop out crushed clove, then slice off root end.

Rock the sharp edge of the knife blade back and forth across a crushed, peeled clove until pieces are of desired size (small for chopped; very small for minced).
