I have been following your website and trying out some cooking recently and I have been having a blast. I never cook but I have found it to be fun! I apologize if this is a question you have already answered, but do you have a suggestion for a good tool to mince garlic? I have bought two and I haven't been happy with either.
I'm so glad you are enjoying cooking! It really is a lot of fun! As for the garlic question, I use two things to mince garlic.
- A good old fashion knife! I use the technique outlined beautifully on eHow.
- My Garlic Press. Stick the clove in, squeeze the bejesus out of it and viola! Minced garlic!
I'm not sure what you are are using now, but don't go gadget crazy, all you really need is a good knife! (and even my 'bad' knife does a good job.)
Hope that helps!
