(dramatic orchestra music)
00:07
Okay.
00:08
Huh.
00:09
(clicks tongue)
00:10
I love garlic.
00:11
I never made garlic paste before.
00:12
Where does this even come from?
00:14
Is this like a, oh.
00:15
I think I know how to do this.
00:16
This is something I kind of know how to do.
00:21
(banging)
00:23
Okay.
00:26
Get this guy out.
00:27
Peel it.
00:28
Eh.
00:32
Shake em.
00:33
(rattling)
00:34
Smash it as hard as possible.
00:36
(smashing)
00:41
And then the skin just comes off.
00:45
What is this?
00:46
It looks like robot.
00:48
The Shamwow guy taught me all about these.
00:52
(rattling)
00:57
It doesn't work!
00:58
Oh my gosh, I broke.
01:00
Garlic press.
01:02
I have no clue what I'm doing over here.
01:05
My mom used to always do this.
01:10
Hmm.
01:12
And then mash it, that's what I would do.
01:14
Okay I'm gonna put it here.
01:15
I'm just gonna. Mmm.
01:18
Uh-uh.
01:20
Luckily I'm very strong so this is very easy.
01:26
This makes me feel like a medieval doctor or something.
01:32
If I were on Game of Thrones I would be
01:33
half naked while I did this.
01:36
Garlic is actually great for your cuticles,
01:38
scoop it out with your fingers.
01:40
Making food and get a manicure at the same time.
01:43
Gonna chop this up really fine.
01:45
I would also add a bit of salt to this.
01:48
That'll start breaking it down
01:49
and giving it that paste like consistency.
01:54
Well.
01:56
Just keep going like that until it
01:57
kinda gets mixed into a paste.
02:01
Whoever thought home ec would come in handy.
02:08
Okay so, I'm just going to remove the clove here
02:11
from the head.
02:13
The first thing I'm going to do is
02:14
cut the root off of the bottom.
02:17
Before even peeling it I'm just going to
02:19
take the side of my knife and crush it.
02:21
That will release it from the peel.
02:23
For making a paste I'm just going to
02:24
give it a quick rough chop.
02:28
I'm gonna use a little bit of salt.
02:30
And I'm just going to work my way back and forth.
02:33
The salt acts as an abrasive, breaks the garlic down.
02:38
And I'm just gonna come back and forth here.
02:45
I mean, that's like a paste.
02:50
(laughs)
02:51
No fear of vampires tonight.
