Here is an unbelievable way to peel a whole head in no time flat. I have included a link to the video. Sub "2 bowls of equal size" for water. the system didn't recognize them. There is no water in the technique..

Directions

  2. Smash the head of garlic with the heel of your hand.
  3. Sweep the cloves into one bowl.
  4. Invert the second bowl over the top of the first bowl.
  5. Hold the bowls together where the rims meet and shake the dickens out of them.
