Then it came to me, why wouldn't a pot with a lid work? I know I could hold that together long enough to get the job done. Well let me tell you it works! It totally works! I used a 2-quart saucepan. It was the perfect size and the lid was very secure. I shook it for 30 seconds of so. Then I picked out the cloves and removed any peels still hanging on. The best part the peels stayed in the pot long enough to carry them to the trash can and dispose of them. I love this trick!
I am going to be embarrassed if you have all been peeling garlic this way for years. If you have don't tell me.
Place garlic in the pot. Place lid on top and shake for 30 seconds or more.
Separate cloves from peels.
Store peeled garlic in a container in the refrigerator,
until ready to use in your recipes.
