Super Easy Way to Peel Garlic

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Garlic can be annoying to peel, but apparently there's a way to just shake off the peels. Was watching the show Hack My Life the other night and saw this segment about "two bowls" - it's a little goofy but hey, it's a helpful tip!

I just smash the garlic onto a counter or cutting board: using my fist, the palm of my hand, or a chef knife's blade. Then just pull on the peel, it comes out very easily.

Me too.  And sometimes I just squeeze it between thumb and forefinger.

I usually just smash it too. But the 2 bowl method is good if you need to peel several heads.

I remember seeing that once - I'll have to give it a try.

I have tried that trick and it works.

if you only need one or 2 cloves, place them in a 500ml (1/2 quart) mason jar, seal it and shake it vigorously for 10-20 seconds. 

Same result, less mess to clean.
