Separate a clove from the bulb of garlic. If you have ever tried to peel a clove of garlic with a paring knife, you know what a tedious job it is. I spent a few years doing it that way until someone showed me the secret of chefs. Get ready. It’s FUN!
There you have it: A clove of garlic already half undressed. SLIP off the rest of the skin easily!
SNIP off the end of the clove. Mince it or slice it or whatever you want to do with it.
Peeling a clove of garlic is no longer an issue. SMASH, SLIP, SNIP. Finished!
