Tuesday Tip: Peel Garlic in 5 Seconds (Literally)

Do you hate it when you are peeling garlic, and your hands get all smelly and sticky?  The papers come off in pieces and stick to your hands...  Just messy and a hassle!

I seriously love garlic.  When I learned how to properly peel it in school, the love affair only grew because it was so much faster and easier.  Woot!  Here are the steps to peel a clove of garlic in about 5 seconds (seriously!):

Step 1:  Gather garlic and a chef knife.

Step 2:  Place knife with blade facing AWAY from you over a clove of garlic.

Step 3:  Place your heel on the blade and press down until clove is smashed.

Step 4:  With one hand, slide the paper off the garlic clove by maneuvering it on the cutting board.

It's that easy!
