I used a stainless steel pot with a tight fitting lid and it worked pretty well.

Now there you go making sense again.

I'll have to give this a shake...
But I wonder if the method's success comes more from the karate chop, rather than the shaken bowl.

I wonder if one of those twirling salad dryers would work just as well (or better?) - gotta try.

I'm thinking it is the smashed garlic crashing into each other that separates the skin. I'll bet if a clove doesn't have the skin already loosened from the smash, exposing the stickniess, it won't be peeled. We need someone to use glass bowls and give us a frame by frame

Unbelievable.
And what is left is dry toes you can work with. Not sticky at all.
I used a couple bowls about 8" in diameter. Smashed a head. Shook. Picked them out. It's like picking Spanish peanuts out of their red skins. This is about the neatest kitchen tip I have ever seen

Thank Steve. I will never buy another jar of minced garlic again for making multiple fatties again! I thought there would be some hang up, like the skins sticking to the bowl... something, but it just plain works.
Do you need some garlic? lol

That is sweet. I'd about stopped using fresh garlic because of it being a PITA to peel.
