Before I met Danny, I sort of hated to peel garlic. Oh, I liked turning the flat of my knife onto the clove of garlic and smashing down. It’s good therapy at the end of a hard day. However, afterwards, there was all the clingy, sticky detritus of garlic peels in my fingers.
Sure, there are tougher problems. Much tougher. But I know that little sensory displeasures like peeling garlic can stop people from cooking.
Danny and I both want people to cook. It’s too much joy and sustenance to let garlic peels stop you.
And so, in this video, Danny is showing you a chef trick, something he learned long ago in a restaurant. Do this and you can have a whole head of peeled garlic cloves ready whenever you need to cook.
