How to prepare garlic paste
There are many people who just whisk the garlic in the blender.
But there are traditional ways that are just as good and a lot cheaper and enviroment friendlier.
In Ecuador the garlic paste has been prepared for centuries, or even thousands of years, just using two stones.
It is necessary to find two stones, one flat one and another smaller and round.
Peel the garlic and wash it throughly.
Then, one clove at time, put it over the flat stone and grind it into paste with the round one.
It is not hard to do and the paste comes out very eaven and smooth.
You can add oil and salt, and any spices you might want to.
