Cooking Basics

Garlic - crushing

Peel the thin skin, then cut into half vertically. Place the cut side down to prevent the garlic from moving around during cutting. Place a flat object on top and press down to crush. The flatside of a knifeblade can also be used, however a wooden spatula is safer as it is less likely to slip during crushing.
