3 Tips About Cooking with Garlic

– After working with garlic, your hands probably smell. Unless you want to scare off vampires all day, wipe them against any stainless steel surface, like the sink. This will deionized the molecules and make them odorless.

– To make garlic easier to peel, microwave for about 5 seconds. You don’t want it to get hot and cook, but just a bit warm. Cut off the butt end first and the rest of the papery outside should peel off easily.

– When picking out garlic at the grocery store, you wan’t to get the freshest head so that it doesn’t start sprouting as soon as you get home. Grab one and smell it. If it smells like garlic, its no good. It should smell like nothing if its fresh!
