Peeling, mincing, chopping garlic can be a pain in the you know what. But thanks to my mother-in-law I have the perfect garlic tool. It makes peeling the garlic a breeze. No more trying to get the last bits of skin off. The blue piece you see in the picture is the ‘peeler’. All I do is put a clove of garlic in the middle of it and roll it between my palms. In seconds the clove is perfectly peeled
The next step is the bowl. Now this has sharp points sticking up in the middle of it. I just grab the garlic clove by the top and run it across the bowl and presto I have grated garlic ready for the pan! The third piece is the little brush. This is used to brush the garlic out of the bowl into the pan or where ever you need it. I love this thing.
My mother-in-law picked this up at the flea market in Palm Desert. You can also use it for grating other spices as well as hard cheeses. You can find these online at many places. Just do a Google search for ‘ceramic garlic grater’.
