GOOD THINGS: [cooking tip | chopping | garlic]

I'm taking this "Good Thing" straight from the creator of it, Martha Stewart.

I don't know about you but when I chop garlic it always gets stuck to the knife on the other side of the blade. Here's Martha's garlic trick.

"sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt and a drop of olive oil over the cloves before chopping; the salt acts as an abrasive, helping to pulverize the garlic, and the oil lets it slide off the blade. To make a paste, lay the side of the knife on the garlic and, applying even pressure, drag it across the garlic several times."

I'll definitely going to trip this trick the next time I have to chop some garlic.
