    Thumbs up How to retire your garlic press...

    Place the garlic clove on the chopping board, get your knife and cut the root end off, and with the palm of your hand press it firmly down onto the clove, squashing it in the process, which will release the skin. Then simply peel the skin off, add some salt (acting as an abrasive) and use the knife to work it in and turn the garlic into a paste.

    Done! It's free, there's less wastage and you don't have to get the stringy bits out of the press afterwards

    Here's a video, showing the process:

    Try it, and once you get used to it, I guarantee that your garlic press will be redundant!

    Most folk have. There are too many bullshit 'kitchen gadgets' around, which are simply unnecessary, a waste of money and just clutter up your kitchen - and a garlic press is one such 'gadget'.

    Lol@the hashtag thing!

    Top tip for ginger Grant is buy it as fresh as you can and get a large piece, give it a good scrub when you get home, thoroughly dry and then freeze it. It grates beautifully if you have a good grater and melts into dishes a treat. It's great in porridge and fresh yoghurt desserts - always fresh and to hand, without going bad.
