Gently separate the cloves from the garlic bulb, being careful not to squash them.
Using a sharp knife, cut off the flat bottom of the clove - be very careful not to cut yourself!
Place the side of the blade against the clove and firmly - but carefully! - bring the heel of your palm down onto the flat of the knife.
Gently peel away the outer layer of the garlic and discard.
Roughly cut the garlic into slices, being very careful of your fingers!
Gather the garlic slices together and then finely dice.
If you’d prefer a finer dice to your garlic, then you could also grate it using a microplane. Again, be really careful of your fingers!
Add to your favourite dish!
