Have I been living under the baking rock?
When I need to get the skins off my garlic, I just smash the clove with the sides of a large chef knife and then pick it apart, welllllll………………
Put your garlic in a Tupperware container(separate the bulbs from one another), put a lid on it and “SHAKE THE HELL OUT OF IT” for about 20 or so seconds.
Me being the skeptic, I was out to prove them wrong.
I try the so called new trick.
And DAMN it, they were right!!!! The skins were totally removed.
Ok, so maybe you already new this new found trickery, smarty pants!
