My easy way to peel garlic without dirtying a pan is to simply press a clove between both of my palms. The peel comes right off. If I am going to mince it anyway, I just put the knife blade on a clove flat and bang it with the palm of my hand. Again the skin comes right off and the garlic is already separated into strands making it easy to mince.

I love garlic so much that I have raised my own for the last three years. Perhaps I am part vampire slayer.

Hi Geri, You're welcome. It is intersting.

Hi Ed, LOL! you are right about peeling garlic. I think this works if you want to keep the garlic whole and remove it after cooking or if you need to peel a lot of it, or you want to use a food procesor for pesto, etc. I planted garlic for the 1st time lat fall and they are up. Where did you buy your heads? I bought mine in Seeds Savers Exchange. It is expensive. I like the scapes so I planted hardnecks.

I actually got my garlic (two bulbs) from a co-worker who got his from someone else. Now I have procreated it enough that I gave a bunch to my parents and they are raising it too. So I don't know what kind it is other than it is a softneck variety.

I have heard of people just going to a farmers market and buying a clove or two of garlic and planting them.

I air dry mine after harvest and then braid them and hang them in the basement where it is cool and dry. Softnecks are easier to store and I still have quite a few from last June's harvest that will probably store through late fall when I will plant them again. I didn't plant any last fall because I thought we might have moved by now. I still have a few volunteer ones growing in my garden but right now, I think my previous years harvest will last until I can plant it at our new house, should we get our current house sold this summer.
