Add a drop of water or oil to your Little Spanish Grater Plate before use. This stops the garlic purée drying and sticking to the plate, making it easier for you to remove.
Cut the tip off the pointed end of the clove. Hold the root of the garlic between your fingers and rub the pointed end over the ceramic teeth. The skin will peel back leaving you with a lovely garlic purée within seconds. Throw away the remaining root part of the garlic. Use a brush to gather the purée and take it off the plate and straight into your recipe.
Alternatively, leave the garlic on the plate and add oil and vinegar for a delicious dipping tray with bread to share amongst friends.
Please note: The Little Spanish Grater Plate helps release the enzymes in the garlic giving it a real punch. It is much, much stronger than if you had of cut it or crushed it!
