    That does seem pretty darned fast. I usually just smack it with the flat side of a knife to peel my cloves the skin comes right off. now I have to try that see if its faster and as efficient. thanks!

    I just peeled about 4 cloves to put in my dutch oven along with a pork roast. I just smash them with the flat side of the knife and out they pop. My house smells wonderful right now. The roast is in the oven smothered in veggies and yeast rolls are rising on the stovetop.

    25-30 years ago I went to a tuperware or rubbermaid party, and got this, said to be a garlic peeler. I just stick the cloves in, roll it around, and it works. I have to separate the cloves though, I like this idea better

    Great video of Martha Stewart. Never thought to do garlic like that before. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks for sharing, it looks so easy, but I too wonder if she shook it for 10 minutes! I have one of those sleeve thingees, you can buy them cheap on eBay, and often use a garlic press or a knife.

    I read in Prevention magazine that you should let the garlic rest for 10 minutes after smashing it before cooking it to get the health benefits from it. That allows the allicin to develop. Allicin is garlic's natural defense against attack, so beat it up and it gets defensive. Allicin helps prevent inflammation and is an anti-oxidant.

    Ok, just thought you'd like to know...
