How to Crush Garlic


Garlic adds an interesting touch and gives off a delicious aroma when used properly and in an appropriate quantity. Below are some of the different methods by which you can easily crush garlic to use in your favorite recipes.

  • Take a piece of garlic and strip off its covering. Place it on a chopping block with the hollow side facing downwards. Use a wooden spoon to press down and apply pressure to crush the garlic.

  • Follow another method--remove the shell and put the garlic on a wooden surface. Take an unopened food can and use its base to whack the garlic until it is crushed.

  • Purchase a garlic press. Put peeled garlic in the cavity of the press. Bring the two ends close and squeeze with your hand to apply pressure to the garlic. This results in a finely crushed product.

  • Wrap the garlic in a durable paper towel. Take a wide chef's knife and press down on the garlic by placing it over the paper towel. Take out the garlic and remove the shell.

  • Use a mortar and pestle. Remove the skin from the garlic. Place the garlic in the mortar (bowl) and use the pestle to finely crush the pieces by striking it down in a rhythmic fashion. Use this method to crush up to five pieces of garlic at a time.
