This isn't a recipie, but I was cooking soup today and as usual wanted to put garlic in it. A few months ago I accidentally wet a bulb of garlic before peeling it and found that as the skin was wet it peeled easier.
I now do this deliberately soaking the cloves of garlic in water for about 30 seconds to a minute before I peel them. After slightly crushing and cutting off the root end of the clove they peel so much easier.
If your reading this dear reader give it a go and let me know if it works for you?
