I love using garlic in my cooking – but peeling it is an onerous, odorous task! The smell of the garlic stays on your fingers for a few days, and this can be unappetizing when you are eating laddoos, for instance!  The standard way to quickly peel garlic can be googled – check it out on AllRecipes. However, the last time my mother was in town, she taught me a quick & un-smelly method that I hadn’t seen before:

  1. Toss in the garlic and a few teaspoons of water into a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave for 30 seconds.
  3. Rejoice, for you can easily squeeze the pods of garlic out of their skins!
