Garlic cloves on a bowl and table
The Stainless Steel Bowl Hack For Peeling Garlic Bulbs In No Time Flat
You can quickly peel the pesky skins off garlic cloves in large quantities by using two stainless steel bowls, an ingenious trick often attributed to the iconic Martha Stewart.
Grab two identical stainless steel bowls. Place whole garlic bulbs in one bowl and cover it with the other, creating a tight seal, and shake the whole contraption vigorously.
When the bulbs collide with the sides of the metal bowls, the friction causes the papery skins to loosen and slip away, leaving you with cloves that are ready for cooking.
