This simple trick was taught to me by my grandfather. Take the garlic clove and use a thin knife to slice it from the back and then you can easily remove the clove bud from the garlic skin.

It becomes sometimes difficult and annoying task to peel cloves of garlic. I am sharing a personal shaking trick which I follow. You can easily peel garlic using this trick.

 



 

  • Break the garlic head into cloves
  • Put the cloves into hard container lock proof or two steel bowls of the same size, pressing together the edges while shaking much bigger than garlic.
  • Shake it for 30 – 40 seconds. When you will pull the cloves out, paper will come off very easily.
  • Still, you are finding the paper difficult to release, shake the container more strongly.
  • Separate the cloves from the peel.
  • Repeat for the remaining left garlic cloves. 

 

Note: Avoid using plastic containers as it may leave a smell and not work as good as steel or metal ones.

 

Microwave tip

 

Heat a head of garlic in a microwave for about 20 seconds and the cloves will slide right out of their skins with no mess and you can do it in a minimal time and effort.
