Peel garlic in 10 seconds--the entire head


Recommended Posts

That's bonkers!

I've don't eat much garlic, and I hardly make anything from scratch, but I'll have to use this technique when making anything with garlic. I am a fan of Italian cuisine, well, I am whenever someone else makes it.

I like my Pampered Chef press, too, but only a clove at a time and I do have to remove material more often than I'd like.

The vid's method , I'm gonna try after I make sure I won't frighten the dog and nappers :)

Peel garlic in 10 seconds--the entire head

This is way cool:

How to Peel a Head of Garlic in Less Than 10 Seconds from SAVEUR.com on Vimeo.

I just might start using fresh garlic again.

That's a really neato tip, Michael. We'll be using it. :smile:

Not being the greatest cook, the tip I use the most gets every single morsel of refried beans out of a can cleanly in less than 10 seconds.

After opening the can, slip a round nosed dinner knife down the edge of the can all the way to the bottom, and twist it slightly. This opens an air passage all the way to the bottom of the can so that when you turn it over and lightly shake it, the suction is broken and the entire contents slide out in one piece.

Since Thanksgiving is close... it also works great on cans of jellied cranberry sauce. :wink:

That's less violent than simply punching a hole in the bottom of the can... Not as quick though.

Domestic violence?

casts a wide net

Only if the can and contents are not imported...

If you don't stop topping me I'll have to deal with you by putting my brain in a jar.

I reuse cans for thinner, parts cleaning, solvents, brush holders and the like.

Few of the cans I use need to be handled in this manner. Besides, I use jars for solvents and the like. And I just like punching holes in cans, even without a gun. I will consider your alternate method however, when a gentle moment needs to be preserved.

Instead of cans... I punch holes in squirrels. :wink:

I like squirrels. I would never shoot what I didn't plan to eat. Unless it was in self defense. My wife claims to hate squirrels because they're always digging in her plants. But she just yells at them. She doesn't move quick enough to scare them, which makes her mad. They just chatter and go about their business. I would never shoot one. I don't think we could be friends, besides, your manner of speaking sets off all kinds of alarms in me, which is how I came to start the Carlos thread. That didn't work out like I hoped. But, there's no hope to save the gullible from the likes of CC, or the likes of my ex-wife's old karate teacher for that matter.

If they were stripping fruit and nuts off of the trees that provide food for you to live on, you'd be singing a different tune.

My wife and I are vegetarians, and our land is used to grow food to sustain us and to keep us healthy. So we tend a wide variety of trees: Apple, Cherry, Orange, Tangerine, Lemon, Almond, Peach, Nectarine, Apricot, Fig Persimmon, Kumquat, and Pomegranate.

There are only two choices. Either the squirrels get the fruit, or we do... so we get the squirrels first before they get the fruit. That's how you survive in the natural world. It's not a Disney movie.

I'm ok with that, Mike... because there's always an inherent risk in being honest. And I agree that it's futile to try to save people from the consequences of their own free choice to be gullible.

Mikee:

I suggest a lever action original daisy BB gun. What we learned to shoot with by knocking Wasps out of the sky.

You can skip a bb on the ground and they should split. However, if they are O'bama squirrels, you may have to bounce one off the ground and smack the thigh. No harm, just a sting. http://www.basspro.com/Daisy-Model-10-Carbine-Lever-Action-BB-Gun/product/10212908/

Thanks for the advice Adam. We live in California, if Karen tried sneaking up on a squirrel w/ a bb gun we'd probably have a swat team visit our house and I'd come home to a dead wife. I've suggested a wrist rocket with clay shot, Karen seemed interested but didn't follow up so I guess the squirrels get a by. They don't bother our orange tree much. Everything else is landscaping. It's just digging in her hanging pots that pisses Karen off the most. They're always burying things. I like the little buggers. Cute, busy. Better work ethic than most people. The juveniles are fun to watch chasing each other through the trees and over the roofs.
