Video: Eli Mandelbaum Chef Yochanan Lambiase explores the world of modern Kosher cuisine, and reveals some of the best-kept secrets of professional Kosher chefs.Check out this amazing neat peeling garlic trick without even using a knife. Yep, that's it. A pot with a lid, a solid cutting board, a quick shake and you're 10 seconds away from a bunch of naked garlic cloves.The great thing is that you don’t just have to limit yourself to one head. Throw in a whole bunch and you can use the garlic for infusing olive oil, making a quick pesto and much more. What you will need:
- Unpeeled garlic
- A pot
- The lid belonging to the pot
- Your hands
STEP ONE: A smashing good time
No super-human strength necessary. Using the palm of your hand, give the garlic a "good old bang." You can even do it twice if you'd like.
STEP TWO: Throw it all together Place the smashed garlic into the pot. And not to worry if you have made a slight mess. That is after all half the fun of working in the kitchen.
STEP THREE: Shake shake shake!There is absolutely no method to this madness. Simply place the lid over the garlic filled pot, put on some Samba music (or hip hop if you prefer), and shake. If you are feeling out of shape, this can also be a great workout!
- If you want to store your pre-peeled garlic cloves, put them in olive oil. They will last much longer, and you will find yourself enjoying a nice garlic-flavored olive oil. Simply superb.
