    Julesong's Note:

    I didn't read this in any of Julia's books, but rather by watching her show. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting with my mother as a little girl, watching Julia on the television.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    batch ( ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 head garlic (or as few as 1 clove - it depends on how many you need)
    • 1 -2 cup water

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove all the cloves of garlic from the head.
    2. 2
      Take a smallish saucepan and heat to boiling about a cup or two of water; add the cloves of garlic and simmer for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Drain the water and peel the garlic (which should be softish and should peel easily) - peeling an entire head can take about 5+ minutes, depending on how accustomed you are to doing it.
    4. 4
      Use in whatever recipe(s) you'd like!
    5. 5
      You can store the peeled garlic in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.
    6. 6
      Note: you can, of course, even do a single clove in this manner - I just like to do a bunch at a time.

      I used this recipe to prepare only a few cloves of garlic. This skins simply slipped off. Very easy. Thanks for sharing. Made for Iron Chefs Tag.
