This garlic-peeling hack looks like a game changer – but something stinks
One of those fiddly kitchen jobs that gets on most people’s nerves is peeling garlic cloves. It takes ages, it makes your fingers stink and even if you have a garlic peeling gadget, they’re hit and miss at best. It seems, however, that there may have been a much easier way of doing it all along.
As someone who makes a lot of Korean food, this is the best method for getting garlic peeled!

I can’t believe I’ve been wasting all that time. I’ve never been this excited to make dinner

But, before you get too excited – if it isn’t already too late – an actual chef wasn’t convinced.
I tried this, and it did not work, at all. Maybe if cloves are large and perfect, and your knife is thicker, and the head is a touch on the dry side, and certain stars are aligned, the results would've been better. https://t.co/Leju6vEncS
