Peeling garlic can be one of the fiddliest and most frustrating jobs in the kitchen.
But it doesn’t have to be – if you learn a very simple trick that can remove the papery skin in just 20 seconds.
All it requires is a microwave.
As demonstrated in a video by Panasonic Asia, start by putting a whole head of garlic in the microwave, and heating for 10 seconds on high.
Use oven mitts to remove the head and check to see if the outer layer is falling away.
