HOW TO PEEL LOTS OF GARLIC BULBS QUICKLY
« on: December 30, 2012, 08:11 PM »
Tried this one last night to outrageous success  ;D

Place the unpeeled garlic bulbs into a largeish container with a lid on.  You then vigorously shake the container about like it's a cocktail shaker for around a minute.  I did 250gms of bulbs last night in seconds.  The result is that the skins get rubbed off by the friction inside the container - simply pick out the skins from the bulbs, voila!

Enjoy, no more using the side of a knife and pressing down, etc, etc.

This works! Which is surprising, because it can be a booger to peel. Nice one Martin.

Pleasure's all mine!
I haven't posted here for a while but got such a lot from Panpot's contributions; this is a tiny input by me but more to follow...curries with alcohol added! Big in my local BIR in Central Scotland.

Mmmmmm. Tried this the other day and nothing happened. Perhaps wrong type of containers or I didn't shake long or hard enough  >:(

It is hard work! But easier than peeling them individually.

I assume you separated the cloves first?

Yessir, just split them up into individual bulbs. I found that a tall plastic tumbler thingy from Tupperware worked well as it allowed for lots of up and down movement as I shook like CRAZY!

Ive tried this method a few times but it never really worked for me.
It could be down to the size of the bowl(s) used.
