Fresh garlic is a common ingredient in so many of the recipes you cook. Chances are it is garlic that has been minced called for in most ingredient lists. So how do you mince garlic? There's more than one right answer, and you can use whichever method you like best.
Place peeled (or unpeeled, if you have a trusty garlic press) garlic cloves in the press and squeeze through the small holes.
Rub peeled garlic cloves across the sharp side of a microplane.
Use a chef's knife to make lengthwise cuts through the peeled clove, then cut the strips crosswise into tiny pieces.
Cut down prep time and buy your garlic pre-minced in a jar. Just spoon out the amount you need for your recipe.
