titled collage: how to peel garlic in 7 seconds

Having a simple kitchen is a lot easier than you would think.  I keep my pantry stocked with staples and things I may need in a pinch.  But, even being well prepared there are those days when kitchen shortcuts are a meal saver.

After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is spend a long time in the kitchen preparing a meal.  I save time where I can and I am so excited to share one of my favorite time saving kitchen tips with you.

How to Peel Garlic

I can’t tell you how much garlic I use, it’s a lot.  I buy it at my wholesale club so I always have it on hand.  I chop it, slice it, dice it, turn it into a paste,  and roast it.  But after a long day, when I need whole garlic cloves I have no patience to peel it.

With my kitchen shortcut I am on my way in just 7 seconds and in my kitchen that is a dinner saver!

Enjoy!

With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. Thanks Donna – love these tips and can't tell you how many times I have thanked you for the tomato paste idea – I hate to throw food away and this is a life saver – have a great week!

  2. I can't stand to drink buttermilk, but I use it in a lot of stuff, sorry to say, I throw half out, most times. Can anyone tell me if the taste of using buttermilk is the same as using Lemon/Milk? Mostly I use mine in baking. thank you love your tips.
