love this tip! Thanks for shring Malor =)
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.
