How to Peel a Clove of Garlic

0
Your rating: None
If you’re like me, fresh garlic is an essential in your kitchen. This flavourful ingredient, however, can be fiddly to peel. Here is a quick and simple method for removing the skin without the need for fancy gadgets.
What you'll need: 
A clove of garlic
A sharp knife
A cutting board
1: 
Slice off the end and tip of the garlic clove.
2: 
Turn the knife on its side and place it on top of the clove.
3: 
Holding the knife steady, firmly but gently pound your fist once over the knife. This will cause the skin to break.
4: 
Remove the peel and mince the garlic as normal.
Tips: 
Although a thin paring knife will work, a knife with a wide blade provides a greater “pounding surface.”
Warnings: 
Avoid striking the knife too strongly as this will crush the garlic clove.
