We reminised another kitchen disaster. As newlyweds, we thought we'd make a spinach pie.
Read the recipe and it stated 1 clove of garlic. Now, as we were both naive and twenty-sometings with no clue as to what a clove of garlic was, I proceeded to peel the entire garlic and dice it down for the spinach pie.
Oy! talk about a garlic hit on the first bite. We couldn't eat it the pie. I'm certain the garlic in our hose still lingers, which would be handy for those who belive in vampires.
Good thing you didn't eat the pie, since the spinach would've likely created a dual ended assault on the senses that could've been catastrophic! LOL2
BTW, I used to work in one of the best Italian joints in our hood as a highschooler, and the job I hated most was chopping garlic. Peeled and chopped it by the pound! Raw lemons and Lemon Joy helped the best.
If you are a fan of hand chopping/cutting things manually, look into ULU Knives
