Category Archives: KITCHEN HACKS

Like many any other folks, I believe that cooking is a skill which means that the more I practice, the better I become. And with practice comes knowledge about what to do when certain oh-no-what-do-i-do-problems i.e. shells in the egg yolk, boiling-over pots of water, peeling garlic, etc. arises.

So as my cooking “game” continues, I also discover, (by searching, of course) some simple ways to make the process easier along the way. And like my recipes, I am happy to share the following simple yet helpful cooking tips that anyone could use. As a chef of your own, you just have to try these tips yourself for you to believe it, and take note, they’d been surprisingly proven to be very effective solutions by various professional chefs around the globe.

Peel Garlic Easily

Did you know that microwaving a head of garlic for 20 seconds removes its peel easily?

Yup! Try and you’ll notice the cloves will slip right out of the casings like magic. Another easy method is to smash the garlic head with the heel of your hand, and then throw it into a metal bowl. Put another metal bowl on top and shake hard for a few seconds. When you remove the top bowl, you’ll see a bunch of naked garlic cloves as shown in the picture. That easy! 🙂
