Thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown, I've been cooking, a lot. Lately it's been mostly potatoes and garlic in olive oil. Much as I enjoy smashing and peeling garlic, then cutting it up with a knife, I've found a better way (again!).
1. Put a bunch of garlic cloves in a plastic jar (I use one of the Kirkland Mixed Nuts), close lid, then shake vigorously until the paper falls off.
2. Bring out the food processor and chop up the garlic.
Much, much easier and you can do many days worth of chopped garlic literally in about a minute!
