Garlic peeling made easy!

Quine | Apr 14, 2011 01:43 PM

I am making some stock and wanted to throw in a bunch of garlic cloves, the mess, the smell on the hands, that weightless garlic paper that gets into places you don't want, when laziness or genius struck.

Recently I was given a large box of latex gloves by the Excellent piercing shop I just found. I have earrings that are made in India and very valuable, but the posts are 16 gauge, so I use 16 gauge piercing studs for everyday wear. Those drat little balls are hard to screw on. But with a pair of latex gloves, all is possible. (yeah a 20 Y.O. taught this 58 Y.O. dog a new trick)

So I have been trying out different uses (makes my beading/jewelry making so easy) and so I donned a pair and started in on the garlic cloves. I was able to grab that paper right of the clove, easy, just a slight rub on the difficult small cloves and no smell on hands, no mess, and about 100 times faster!

A box of gloves will now live in my kitchen I am sure other uses are going to be found.
