How to peel a head of Garlic

Posted by Bee & John on December 22, 2011 at 11:00 PM

I peel garlic a lot.  I make quite a bit of Tikka Paste for John's butcher shop (where the Chicken Tikka Sausages are a big hit!) and also use garlic for my demonstrations.

There is a very easy way to peel garlic in the Thermomix!!  Thanks Helene for your fabulous video!!  Superkitchenmachine.com is truely an asset to all Thermomix owners!

However!  I nearly ALWAYS need to peel garlic when there is something ALREADY in the Thermomix - 9 out of 10 times when I am making the Tikka paste I get to the "add 100g of peeled garlic" bit and I'm already dry roasting the spices!  

I was laughing about this with my daughter who then sent me a fabulous link I thought I would share!  FAB!!!  Thanks love!


HINT: dried garlic will always peel easier.  Keep them in a well aired spot OUT of the fridge. I keep my garlic cloves seperated in a little tin, which I found in a kitchen shop, with little holes in it.

LESSON: For those who are interested..... I have now watched 20-30 of Wimp's videos and they are all worth watching - truely ecclectic range of topics - but great entertainment!!
