Let’s face it: nobody has time to peel each clove of garlic individually. Plus, you can get a little anger out doing it this way. Kill two birds with one stone.
Step 1: Smash that garlic.
Place the garlic on a flat surface, and with the heel of your hand, give it a good smash.
Step 2: Scoop it into a bowl.
Wrangle up those loose cloves, put them into a bowl, then cover with another bowl.
Step 3: Shakey shakey.
Shake the bowls around for 30 seconds or so (don’t be afraid to get feisty).
Step 4: Naked cloves.
No need to peel these babies.
