From my last post you learned that I adore garlic, so now I’m going to let you in on a little secret of mine…
I use this trick almost every day!
All you need is a jar or thick container and garlic.
First things first: Smash the whole garlic to break it into individual cloves. Usually I can just use the palm of my hand, but sometimes my garlic can be stubborn and I have to either A) have my husband do it or B) grab a cook book to smash it.
Drop all the unpeeled garlic cloves into your large mason jar, or any sturdy container. I’ve used rubbermaid plastic containers and it worked just fine, but one time I had an epic fail with a thin and flimsy plastic container. I shook that jar for so long I was sore the next day…
…and there you have it! Perfectly peeled garlic every time! If you aren’t going to use all the garlic at once, put in in a jar and use through out the week. If you want your garlic to last a few months in the fridge, put the garlic in a jar, cover with white vinegar and keep in the fridge for up to 3 months. (It doesn’t make your garlic taste vinegary.)
Now go shake it! xo!
