We have to confess that one of our least favorite kitchen activities is peeling garlic. Here’s an easy trick we recently learned…

We have shared numerous ways to peel garlic (along with the usual smash the individual clove), but we just discovered this peeling trick is the easiest by far. Simply put your loose cloves in the microwave, and nuke them for 10 to 15 seconds on HIGH and voilà! The skins come off in a snap…even on those small, difficult cloves with skins that don’t want to let go.
