Introduction: Shakin' Garlic Skin With a Silicon Pot Lid

Hate peeling garlic cloves? Me too!

Peeling garlic with a knife can take forever and the garlic odor left on your finger isn't exactly the sweet smell of a bouquet of roses!

So, I'd like to share with you a quick, odor-free method to peeling garlic cloves using a silicon pot lid.

Step 1: What You Need:

  • A fresh head of garlic
  • A silicon pot lid.

Step 2: Separate the Garlic Cloves

There are lots of ways to separate the garlic cloves.

Some crush the garlic head from the top, some use a knife and others use their fingers.

To each his own!!!

Step 3: Place the Garlic Clove on the Lid

Place the garlic clove at a spot about a quarter of the diameter of the lid.

Step 4: Shakin' the Skin

  • Fold a third of the lid over the garlic clove and slide the hand forward and past the garlic clove.
  • Quickly repeat this back and forth motion 2-3 times.

Step 5: Voila!

FYI: you can peel a few cloves at a time.
