What the…? This changes everything. (via Loobylu)
Oh. My. God.
all i can think is: dude, now you have to wash two bowls.
WAS THAT MAGIC?!!?!?!?!
that cannot actually be a thing.
I’ve tried it – it’s actually kind of hard to hold the bowls together unless they have a really sturdy lip – mine I couldn’t hold it tight enough to not have the garlic cloves go flying everywhere. And you really do need to ‘shake the dickens’ out of it.
Maybe you could put a big rubberband around the bowls to help keep them together?
Or you could buy garlic already mashed? Not that I’ve tried that.. But peeling it doesn’t bug me!
We do it with a couple of round cake pans – easier to hold onto? – and it works like a charm.
Must try asap!
ahh yes. i remember this was on NPR a few thanksgivings ago. i went home and promptly tried it. it is truly amazing.
it does change everything. it really does.
The cake pans Jenny mentioned is a great idea!As I also was thinking you now have to wash two bowls – hee hee.
Whoa! Will need to try this when I make pesto today!!
It works, and it’s LOUD. Hide the pets.
I felt the same way about cooking corn in the husk in the microwave.
You can also toss them in the food processor with the pastry blade on. Sometimes, the peels are even nice and stick up on the sides leaving the cloves below!
