Peeling Garlic the Easy Way

Peeling garlic cloves may not be that difficult, but here’s the easiest way to do it. Cut off the root end of the clove (the “hairy” part) with a wide-blade cutting knife. Lay the big blade of the knife flat over the clove, then quickly and firmly bang the knife on the clove with the heel of your hand. The clove will be slightly broken and the peel will easily come off.
