To peel garlic cloves in no time at all and without all the fiddle and fuss, simply place the cloves in a closed plastic container or glass jar and shake vigorously. As the garlic hits against the sides, the skin comes off and you can easily separate out the peeled cloves after about 20 seconds. You can even try shaking the garlic in two bowls of the same size, held together tightly. 

Now you can indulge in all the savory, stinky garlic recipes you love! You're welcome.
