Peeling garlic can take some time. While the ingredient is crucial to many dishes, and adds robust flavor to many more, it can leave your fingers smelly for the entire day if you spend too much time fumbling with the peeling process.
In YouTuber DaveHax’s latest video, he shows us how to peel garlic in mere seconds while keeping you fingers smelling like nothing at all. A pretty handy hack if you’re trying to shave minutes off your overall cooking time.
All you need is some of those plastic jar grips that are designed to help people open jars. You simply lay your clove of garlic on the grip, roll one end over the other firmly and the skin should slip right out.
The process leaves virtually no mess and perfectly peeled garlic ready to be used in your culinary crusade.
