How to peel lots of garlic – fast!
Thanks to Amy Lynn Andrews’ Saveur link, here’s how to peel a whole head of garlic, super fast! This is a great tip for those times when you need a LOT of garlic, as in the Garlic Mayo Grilled Shrimp recipe.
In case you cannot view this video, food editor Todd Coleman smashes a whole head of garlic with the palm of his hand (some garlic cloves fly around), then he puts all of the cloves into a large stainless bowl, covers it with an identical bowl (it looks like a ball), and shakes it hard for a few seconds. Voila! Peeled garlic!
