Peeling Garlic Made Easy

Don't know how many people use actual garlic cloves (I'm a big fan of the powdered, myself), but if you do, this tip on how to peel the ticklish scamps in 10 seconds might come in handy:

  1. OH.... peeLing garlic. Never mind.

  2. I'm not sure I'm big enough to shake bowls that hard.

    PeeLing. Heh. I thought that only applied to asparagus.

  3. You may wish to reconsider the whole "powdered garlic" meme if you actually want food that tastes like garlic.

    As far as peeling, I cut the end off where it was attached to the bulb, tap the clove with the flat of my cleaver blade, and the skin falls right off. A good whack with the same blade flat and now they are crushed garlic. A couple quick chops and they are minced garlic. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

    And no disgusting powdered garbage need ever touch your food.

  4. I second the "powdered garlic sucks" opinion. Used to use it, then started using fresh and haven't gone back. Buying the jars of minced is ok too.

  5. Just whack it with a knife. It makes ya feel good.
