Garlic Tools For The Culinary Therapist In You
What are garlic tools for? Well, they are all important for the kitchen. You have the peeler, garlic press and garlic spoon, as well as many other tools. These tools also make it easy to add garlic extract to your cooking or soup.
The most common garlic tool is the garlic extractor. This is a stainless steel tool with a looping stem that you use to remove garlic clove size pieces from the garlic. The garlic extractor is simple to use and it is also very effective. Just place the garlic clove in the mouth of the garlic extractor, twist the handle downward and the garlic juice will be extracted into a cup. You can also use it to extract juice from onions or any other vegetables.
Garlic press is another tool that assists in extracting juice from garlic and onion. It consists of a wooden handle and a metal strip that holds the garlic firmly in place. Simply put the garlic in the garlic press and, using a wooden spoon, turn it over to squeeze the juice out. The garlic extractor is useful for unpeeling garlic and for pressing and extracting juice. The tools also make it possible to peel leeks.
There are also garlic presses and garlic scrapers. The garlic scrapers are used to cut the zest and flesh from leeks. The scraping tool is similar to the garlic extractor, except you use the knife to scrape the leeks instead of the hooking stem of the garlic press. Garlic scrapers are very effective if you have the right size of garlic to be scraped.
Another very effective garlic tool is the garlic press. This is a small but powerful garlic press that is used for extracting and squeezing juice from fresh garlic cloves. Simply place a clove of garlic in the mouth of this garlic press and close the lid for a few minutes. After about five minutes, remove the garlic from the garlic press and use it like a spout to release the extracted garlic juice.
Garlic gloves are also tools that most cooks should have. These come in several styles, including those made from stainless steel. Simply slip the glove over your hand and hold the garlic tools close to the garlic blades. Using your fingers, push the garlic into the holes until the garlic starts to slip out. Then slip the glove back over your hand and slip it off again.
A garlic press can also be used with a garlic extractor. Simply hold the garlic extractor over the garlic head and turn the tool over to squeeze some juice out. This is especially helpful if you are trying to get rid of garlic gloves without dealing with the garlic head directly. Garlic gloves are also useful for removing garlic stems when you are making stock. You simply slip the garlic stems over your hand and then use the garlic extractor to get them out.
There are a variety of other garlic tools that you can use on a daily basis. The basic tools include garlic slicers and garlic presses, but there are also knives that you can buy to easily cut garlic into thin strips or chunks. You can also use a garlic grinder if you want the consistency of garlic to be firmer or you can use a mortar and pestle to make sure that the garlic sticks to the pot. These are just a few of the many tools that you can use for growing and cooking with garlic.
There are also specialized tools for growing garlic like the Electric Squid. The Electric Squid uses a pulsating pulse to shake and agitate water to loosen and fluff up the garlic for extra fine mist. It also features an oscillating blade and a fine-toothed screw to help with very tough spots.
While it may take some time and patience to learn how to use all of these different garlic tools effectively, anyone can quickly become proficient with their use. Even if you only use garlic for the odd bit of garlic ribs in a recipe at home, you will quickly see the benefits of using garlic tools. Garlic is one of the most natural and powerful spices that you can add to your cooking. It adds an extraordinary flavor to food without overpowering it.
Garlic is cheap, easy to grow and one of the most useful herbs around. Imagine what you could do with all of the extra garlic you would now have! The number of tools available for garlic use in the kitchen is virtually limitless. Finding the perfect set or combination of tools for your use will be largely based on personal preference.
