Sorry for my absence everyone but have had some computer issues.
Here is a quick and easy tip for peeling fresh garlic.
Take a head of garlic and smash it with your palm against the counter until all the cloves are separated.
Put the garlic in a container and cover it with hot water.
Let it sit in the water for about 30 minutes and that is it.
Use a paring knife to peel back the skin and you will find not only is it easier but your hands don't get all sticky from it.
