Peel a Head of Garlic Quickly

Apologies if someone posted this previously, but I saw this on YouTube a couple of weeks ago. My first thought when I saw this was "that can't possibly work!" But last night I tried it and it really does. I peeled 5 heads of garlic in maybe 2 minutes. You also don't have to use the humongous bowls like the guy in the video. Small metal mixing bowls work just fine.

Check it out...

No way.
That does look too easy.

Great post, Steve. I gotta try that out, but I used my last toe last night.

It works. Makes lots of noise. I get the best results from the outer cloves. The inner, less evenly shaped cloves don't seem to work as well for me.

Well, I just kind of assumed that any guy who can peel 5 heads of garlic in 2 minutes probably has humongous bowls.
