Or you can cut the bottom of the bulb off and microwave for 10 seconds which is even more effective :)

I've seen that video, good idea.

I saw somewhere here, someone said to soak garlic in water for 15 minutes and they easily shed their skins......that didn't work so much for me. My garlic might be too dry or water repellant?

I still throw them in boiling water for 1 minute, put in cold water.......the skins come off much easier for me. (for peeling 20-50 cloves at a time) I like that they are not crushed and they are whole.

I haven't tried the microwave method yet.

Do I have to go pick up some garlic to try this or is anyone else willing to be the tester?

I saw Rachael Ray do this on her 30 minute meals show a long time ago. Unfortunately, the only pair of bowls I have are glass, and very heavy. All that noise would probably give me a headache and I'd have to stop cooking and go lie down.

Just watching all that work made me want a nap! Use a couple of stone bowls and make it a bit quieter!

I wonder if you really need the bowls to be that big. And if so, stoneware might be well, way too heavy to toss about like that.

I think it would be almost impossible to toss a couple of stone bowls about like that, Frank.

Actually, the ones I used were small metal mixing bowls, maybe 6 or 7 inches in diameter. They worked just fine. I'd be willing to bet you could even get away with using plastic. I think the big ones the guy in the video uses are more for show than practicality.

I would likely drop the bowls and find shriveled garlic cloves, perfectly peeled, of course, when spring cleaning occurs.
