Peeling Garlic

//Peeling Garlic
Did you know it’s so much quicker to peel garlic in the tmx?
I was shown a YouTube clip on this some time ago and thought Id give it a whirl tonight as I have a tonne of garlic about to sprout.

The first attempt was a garlicky, watery mess. Wasn’t pretty at all. Second attempt was perfect.

My tips:

  • Do one or two bulbs at time at most. I was too adventurous with my first attempt and had about 5.
  • Place garlic cloves in the bowl and cover completely with water.
  • Blitz on reverse, speed 4 at most. Watch it closely. Stop at 5 secs and check it. If not many skins are off blitz again.
  • I didn’t want to over blitz so I peeled the last few cloves by hand (took less than two seconds. It’s soft and comes straight off). Your garlic is ready for use.
  • You can use the water and skins to help boost your next liquid stock.
