Question: Is pressing garlic an acceptable substitute for mincing garlic?

Angela Roberta | Jan 7, 2008 11:56 AM

I'm just not good at mincing garlic. I find pressing it so much easier. Is there a radical difference in taste? If pressing makes the taste stronger, could I use a bit less than the recipe calls for?

Thanks.
