Do you have a microplane? Some people call it a zester. Whatever you call it doesn't matter. What matters is that you use this magnificent device on your garlic. A garlic press ain't got nothin' on this baby. You'll get crazy garlic flavor when you grate your garlic with this little gadget.
Just try it. Tell me you don't get the absolute most awesomest garlic flavor ever.
Just be careful. Don't grate your fingers in the process. Be certain to only grate the garlic and not yourself.
Also use this baby on your ginger root. And horseradish if you like that. And it's perfect for zesting citrus as well.
But you haven't really lived until you've had food with microplaned garlic in it.
