I know you’re probably thinking “how to cut garlic?” Duh! But there is an easier way to do it – unless you already know this trick. And if you do, ignore me. By the way, I want to give a shout-out to my daughter Tabitha Orr who taught me this trick. Who says old Mom’s can’t learn new tricks.
- Lay your garlic on a chopping board.
- Take your garlic and chop of the hard end. This part is actually optional, because the trick will for the most part, do this for me. So it’s your call.
- Take the flat side of a heavy butcher knife and lay it on the garlic. Make a fist and hit the knife HARD.
- Voila! Peeled garlic. And your hands don’t even smell garlicky, it’s not under your fingernails, etc.
