    Default Garlic Peeling by Martha Stewart

    Did anyone see her do this using two stainless steel mixing bowls? She put
    four cloves of garlic in one of them, then turned the other one upside down
    over the first one. Bowls were the same size. Small bowls. She then shook
    them rapidly and fiercely. After a little while she then looked in the one
    bowl and all of the skin was off of the garlic. Sooo cool!

    I might try that if I wanted to peel a lot, but I don't and I use Marty's
    method of taking off the inner peel first, and the rest drops off You must
    have missed it we talked about it a wee while ago)

    Are you saying peel off the concave skin first ? Is that why I notice
    some peel easily and others not so much ?

    I saw it but didn't really understand it. And while I don't usually use a
    lot, my husband *is* Italian and loves the stuff so once in a while I do use
    quite a bit. So this method looks great!

    I just whack cloves of garlic with the flat side of a cleaver. It peels
    easy enough after that.

    Yup. I just use the flat side of the chef's knife. Peel slips right off, easy peasey.

    That's pretty much the way I do it, too. Well, I don't exactly whack
    it, I just press hard on it with the flat side of my chef's knife. The
    garlic clove flattens out, and the peel separates from it.

    I used to do that but really, just nick and pull the edge of the inner peel
    and the rest just falls off

    Lately, when I just want a clove or two, I use the whack and roll method. One light whack with side of the knife or meat mallet, then dampen my hands and roll between palms. Garlic paper seems to just about fall off.

    Lately, I have just used the whack and roll method when I want a clove or two. One light whack with flat side of a biggish knife ( use it later to mince ) and roll clove between my dampened palms. Paper almost falls off.

    To get out two bowls just for that seems like a bigger effort than I wish to expend.

    I don't know if you've ever used the round silicone plastic tube peeler
    for garlic?

    You can apply minimal pressure, roll back and forth, and out pops an
    undamaged clove, minus the skin.

    This is very useful when one wants to thin slice garlic for fried chips.

    Screw Martha Stewart and all these easy-peel gimmicks that show here
    regularly.

    If I want to use garlic, I'll nip off the ends, split it, peel it, smash it,
    then mince it. If you are putting the time into making a good meal, that's
    no big deal. It gets sticky on your fingers. so what? If that bothers you,
    use garlic powder.

    The "how to peel an onion" threads are equally as funny.

    It is interesting though to hear about others' different methods

    Well, DUH to me. It's been awhile and Jill is correct. You don't need to nip
    off the ends then peel them before smashing. What was I thinking.

    You just smash the cloves, and the peels come right off....then you mince
    the garlic.

    What if you want thin-sliced, un-mashed chips?

    There is room for _both types_ or garlic processing you know.

    But don't use your ceramic chef's knife, especially if you're a brute
    like me.
