Peeling garlic becomes an obsession for many people, not only because it takes time, but its smell also lingers on the hand for a long time.
Suggest some ways to make you feel like peeling garlic has never been so easy.
Use beer bottle caps
Many people often use a knife to crush garlic and then peel it. Although this method is quite quick, if you are not careful, it will cause garlic to splatter everywhere. A more effective way is to use a serrated beer cap.
Making: Use the serrated segments of the beer bottle to cut the garlic cloves to peel off the skin with the garlic meat. The serrated teeth are like a sharp blade, making peeling easier, without wasting any garlic cloves.
Use a sharp knife and a sealed container
In case you need to use a lot of garlic at once, you can refer to the following two ways:
Method 1: Use a knife to cut the garlic in half horizontally. Place two halves of garlic on a cutting board and then use a sharp knife to pound the garlic that has just turned upside down. Then just gently peel off the shell and you’re done.
Note, this method of peeling garlic should only be applied to garlic with large cloves and thick skin. For garlic with small cloves, it is difficult to apply.
Method 2: Use a knife to cut close to the tail of the garlic bulb, discard.
Prepare a plastic container with a tight lid, put the remaining garlic in the box, close the lid and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. This will also help you to remove the garlic skin quickly.
Use the microwave
No matter how stubborn the garlic peel is, it has to “give up” when it comes to high temperatures. Use the microwave to peel garlic, you can follow the following method: Separate the garlic cloves and put them on a plate, put in the microwave at a moderate temperature for 15-20 seconds. Take the garlic out and let it cool completely, then peel it off easily by hand.
Note, do not heat garlic in the microwave with too high a temperature or for too long, so the garlic will be cooked, reducing the taste when processing the dish later.
If you don’t have a microwave at home, use a hot pan. Place a pan on the stove and heat. Garlic after separating the cloves, put in a hot pan and roast for a few minutes. High heat will cause the garlic skin to peel or loosen. At this time, you gently rub the garlic cloves to make their peel easily peel off.
Use warm water
Warm water is effective for peeling garlic in large quantities.
Making: Separate the garlic cloves into separate cloves and place them in a bowl. Cover the garlic with water and soak for a few minutes. Then, take out the garlic and peel the outer skin easily.
