How to Peel a Head of Garlic in Less Than 10 Seconds


Cooking more at home is a commitment. Granted it provides us way more control on how the food we eat is prepared and in what amounts. It is so much healthier for us. There are many more benefits as well. We can save money...lots of money. We can even have friends over for a meal and decent bottle of wine for less than my husband and I can go out to dine. So it is good for friendships, camaraderie and conversation. Being a professed "foodie", I also find cooking incredibly creative and expressive. Like a painting, poem or garden, it is the way I express myself; cooking says a lot about who I am and what I see as important. But it takes time.

The more you cook, the quicker and better you get at it. The more you pre-plan your meals the less time you spend daily on executing your meals. But ultimately there it the chopping and peeling and measuring that can't be gotten around....until my son sent us this video...How to Peel a Head of Garlic in Less Than 10 Seconds...Peeling Garlic Video . My husband tried out the process last night and it really worked! It is not often you find something that can really save you time on ordinary tasks so it is a real find when it happens. Since garlic is one of the SuperFoods I wrote about yesterday, it is good to know there is a way to encourage us to use it often and in more ways!
