I just made this roasted garlic and chicken recipe and it asked for 40 cloves of peeled garlic and I read on another forum a quick and easy way to do it.
  • seperate the garlic cloves
  • put in a metal bowl
  • put another metla bowl over it to seal it and make a ball shape
  • shake it vigorously for 1-2 minutes (this part is loud)

it really works!!

    Really?? I always hate peeling garlic because you can't get the smell off of your fingers for a week!!

    Thanks for the tip!

          Good trick! Who would have 'thunk' it?

          Okay Tammy, I had to read this post because after all of the cherries you ate yesterday, I had to wonder what you were doing peeling alot of garlic cloves...

            For smelly fingers - I learned a very interesting trick from a chef that works (really, it does work perfectly).

            All you need to do is rub your fingers on something that is stainless steel. We like garlic, so we keep this big stainless steel masher thing (or pounder thing) next to the sink.

              Why not just buy pre-peeled cloves of garlic? I didn't see those in the grocery store until AFTER I'd already peeled 40 cloves of garlic when I cooked that chicken recipe last.
