I hate mincing garlic! It gives me such a hard time because of the stickiness! I will have to try to cut it into slivers before mincing! Thanks for the tips!

Garlic smell on your hands can be easily removed by rubbing them with stainless steel under running water. I just use the chef's knife--you have to wash it anyhow. Just don't slice yourself.

I'm almost 71 years old and I've never known how to easily cut and dice an onion. I now know to leave the root end intact. Thank you!
