How to Peel and Mince Garlic
Learn how to peel and mince fresh garlic.
To mince fresh garlic, begin by separating the head into individual cloves with your hands. Smash a garlic clove under the blade of a chef’s knife, by hitting the blade with the palm of your hand. This breaks the clove open and releases the peel. Remove the peel. Then guide the garlic under the knife edge with your fingers, and rock the knife through the garlic until it’s minced.
