Peeling Garlic


It’s funny the little things you pick-up along the way, add to your cooking repertoire, and promptly forget that you didn’t always do things that way. Peeling garlic is one of those things. I used to painstakingly work away at a bulb of garlic with my fingernails. Then, years ago, I learned the easy way to peel a bulb of garlic. Using a large sharp knife, cut off the ends. Then, with the bulb on it’s side, place the side of the knife on the top side of the bulb and firmly press down. You should then be able to easily remove the peel in one piece. If my description doesn’t make sense, you can check out this video (her technique is slightly different than mine).
