There have been days that have gone by when I felt like something was missing. Then, I realized that I hadn’t had garlic. You see, I come from a long line of garlic-lovers, so it’s a must-have in our kitchen.
My husband is the official garlic squisher in our household, but I usually help by prepping the cloves.
Below, is the Garlic Peeler, which is basically a cylindrically-shaped rubber mat.
It’s not as effective, but you can also cut a large square from that grip-type shelf liner.
Here’s another trick, which I have yet to try. They assure you that you can peel a head of garlic in less than 10 seconds by using two bowls. Note: if you’re flaring, the whacking and the shaking may pose a problem.
