Tip ~ To peel alot of garlic cloves

Recommended Posts

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!!

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.

for some reason i dont like to buy the pre-peeled kind unless i know i am gonna use it that night...i feel like the whole head of garlic keeps better...also, i am weird like that...dont know who did the peelin
