I will have to try this! SIL sent some nice garlic home with us. Thanks for the report, Pac!

This is where I ended up as well. I had so much fun doing it that I now have several heads of peeled garlic to deal with. I put them in the fridge in some olive oil. I love garlic, so I'm sure it will be used up quickly enough.

Hmm, wish I had known this when I was at culinary school. About twice a week we were told as a class when there was nothing to do, to peel and de-vein a whole basket full of garlic. We always wondered where it all went......until we made it out of training kitchen into the restaurant kitchen and we had all this prepared garlic waiting for us!

I had pretty much stopped using fresh garlic too, but this method might just make me convert back!! Awesome!

I wonder if an 8 inch heavy duty paper plate over an 8 inch bowl would work, otherwise I will have to go buy another bowl to fit over mine. I might have a metal pot lid that would work.

Or a large Tupperware container with a cover? Or pot with a lid- I'm probably going to use my pressure cooker so the lid doesn't go flying ;)

I have to have something fairly light, my shoulders don't work well anymore, too heavy and I wouldn't be able to shake it even once.

Oh great! I tried this and my recipe called for one small clove of peeled garlic. Looks like a big Italian feast for one tonight.

I made this with my garlic. It freezes well, too.

Thank you for the independent confirmation.

I wonder if there is a difference in different materials for the bowl? Stainless vs plastic vs whatever.
