How to Peel a Head of Garlic in 10 Seconds

Holy garlic, Batman. Are you one of those people for whom the odor of garlic just sticks to your fingers for days? I am. I love the stuff, but I don’t love smelling it on my fingertips at 7am.

I do have one of those silicone roller devices, and it works well to remove the papery garlic skin. But there’s still a lot of handling involved.

Now those nice people at Saveur.com have saved me from ever having to peel garlic again.

    Hey there, just checking out your blog, after I read your comment on mine. :)
    Another quick garlic peeling tip that’s a bit less of production than this: just put it on your cutting board, set the broad side of a chef’s knife over it, and thwap it once really hard. The skin falls right off. (Though, as a friend learned the hard way, don’t do it if your knives are ceramic!)
