How to soften garlic taste
Blanch garlic three times to soften the taste and enhance the flavor.
What is blanching? Blanching is boiling a food - starting with cold water - and removing it when the water starts to boil. For garlic, this action must be repeated three times always starting with cold water. This reduces the pungency of the garlic and the technique may also be applied to other ingredients such as fish bones, etc.
