Great Tip For Peeling Garlic

Skin Peels Clean Off
One of my biggest prepping pet hates is peeling garlic and I use a lot of the stuff so I dread to think how many hours I've spent begrudgingly doing it. Only the washing up could get a greater sigh out of me in the kitchen. I absolutely hate peeling blooming garlic.

That was until I tried something so simple, yet so astonishingly effective.

I Popped a garlic bulb into the microwave on high for 15 seconds. It takes the moisture from between the clove and skin and makes peeling it really, really easy. In fact, of all the cloves I peeled, the skin came off whole for each one. The garlic comes out very hot so don't try to peel as soon as you take it out, leave for a minute or so to cool a bit.

If you only need one or a couple of cloves just microwave for a few seconds.

I wish I'd discovered this trick years ago, it works a treat. Oh, and it also means that you don't get sticky garlic fingers, I hated having sticking garlic fingers. Time saving and less mess, always a bonus.
