    That would be handy.

    Too bad I rarely use that much garlic in one sitting.

    I just bust off the cloves I need, cut the steam-end, and the smash the clove with the flat of my knife.

    That’s high on the “whoa, no way!” factor.

    Trying that tonight.

    Clearly, preparing for a werewolf apocalypse.
    Full moon, next week, just saying.

    I migrated my garlic patch into a margin, clear around the garden. Rabbits and ground hogs will not cross it, but I have more garlic than you can shake a crucifix at.

    I’m with Weer’d Beard on this one. I use the flat knife trick. I suppose it’s less than ideal if you want to keep the clove itself intact, but then for that you can use one of those rollie-tubie-thingies, which also works well.

  6. Standard Mischief Says:

    I’m typically a flat-knife person too. But this would be great for the other 6 cloves in the mesh bag that dry out or get moldy while you are still working on the first two cloves.

    I usually get 8 heads for one buck and end up throwing away at least half or just buying a jar of that lazy stuff and using it instead. Now I can drizzle a little olive oil over the rest of the cloves and roast, and eat as a vegetable.

    I did this yesterday with about 6 cloves and it works awesome. I used a plastic bowl and a small round pizza type pan. Metal on both sides would probably have been better. I’m a fan of the knife whack myself, but when you’re doing a garlic stuffed roast or need thinly sliced or shaved garlic, this seems to be the way to go.
