Cooking Tips : How to Peel Garlic

Uploaded by cookingguide on 27.10.2008

To peel apart the cloves of garlic all you're going to do is take the palm of your hand
and we're going to apply a little pressure and press it down. That will make them come
apart really easy. Now we can discard the extra paper. Get that out of the way. Now
we 're going to peel this clove of garlic. The way to do it is to lay it on your cutting
board and we're going to take our knife and with the heel of our hand hit the knife. However,
you do want to be very careful. You want to make sure you have a good hit on it and you
want to make sure your knife is not going to roll and possibly cut you. So just be aware
of that. Take this, give it a nice little hit and the skin just comes away really easily.
That is how we peel a clove of garlic.
