How to Easily Peel a Head of Garlic With Your Knife
This technique for peeling a whole head of garlic is simple and quick, proving that peeling garlic doesn’t have to be a chore.
Place the garlic head between the work surface and the flat part of your chef’s knife. Make a fist and carefully hit the knife to separate the head into cloves. Next, cut off a tiny end of each clove, then split the tough outer skin of the clove by putting it under the flat part of the knife and tapping the blade. Finally, simply peel the outer skin from the garlic clove. It’ll peel right off!
