If your family cooks anything like my hubby and I do, you probably use a lot of garlic. We have handy little tools to make things easier, such as our garlic press (on the left), and the silicone peeler (on the right). But when you need more than a few cloves, this simple trick is SO much quicker!
Now, whether you're making a big pot of chili or canning pickles, you can peel all of your garlic in just 10 seconds!
How to do it:
1. Peel the desired amount of cloves from the bulb.
2. Place them all in a plastic container with a lid. (I just used a Ziploc container.)
3. Then, shake vigorously for 10 seconds.
When you open the container, the skins will be empty and your cloves will be peeled!
Now, go ahead and peel a whole bulb of garlic!
Just be sure to have a few after-dinner mints handy. :)
