Randy, take the side of a chef's knife, smash the garlic with the wide edge with a firm hit to the knife. Remove the skin. Then do a "hit and drag" motion with the knife over the garlic and voilà, the nicest garlic juice one could ever want, no chunks of garlic, just creamed garlic.

You can mask the taste of garlic simply by using its juice and adding  this to another juice that you drink. Green tea, SunnyD, apple juice, etc.

Here's a good one. Squeeze some fresh garlic into a glass and add a double shot of Real Lemon. Fill the glass with warm SunnyD and stir this up, drinking it first thing in the morning or last thing at night.

That's your choice concerning garlic, Sk8eycat, but don't be surprised when you're plagued by vampires!  :)

I use a garlic press for squeezing the juice out of fresh ginger root. (I cut it into small pieces first.)

I don't give a rat's ass if garlic is a medical cure-all; I'd rather die than eat the stinky stuff.

You're right, Carl. Using garlic and chopped onion is very healthy. I have a small chopper that can make chopped onions just like you buy frozen in the store. Putting this in soups and other things is very good. I even add chopped onions to a store bought can of noodle soup.

Michael, there's no good excuse for not using a lot of garlic and often.  You need to get that garlic press out of the drawer and start cooking!  lol

I just had to have a garlic press even though I don't use one very often. At a resale shop I found an Italian Brevettato model made of solid aluminium. It must be 30 years old or more, is a simple 2 piece design, and works well. I thought I would be using it a lot more than I do.

Have you tried the Rosle brand garlic press? It's a bit different design and way easier to clean.

I find that after using my garlic press, if I immediately soak it in water, it's easy to clean because the garlic doesn't get sticky and clog up the holes.

Randall, I rarely use my garlic press, and for the same reasons as you. Pain in the backside to clean. Besides, I take a chef's knife, putting it flat over the clove, and smack the snot out of it. Paper comes right off, and some of the juice is released. Then, use a small and very sharp paring knife to finely slice it.
