How to peel and finely chop garlic



Slice off the ends

Slice off the ends of a clove of unpeeled garlic.

Squash the garlic clove

Place the garlic clove on a chopping board, cover with a large knife then firmly hit once with your closed hand (make sure you've thoroughly squashed the garlic clove, if not give it another hit!)

Peel off the skin

Peel the skin off the squashed garlic clove. If you have squashed it properly the skin will come away easily.

Finely slice

Finely slice the peeled garlic and it will fall away into tiny pieces.
