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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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.
BEST OF LUCK!
