Peeling garlic can be a time-consuming activity, especially when the skin gets stuck and you need to struggle to get it off. But worry not, as we come to your rescue with this tip. Simply cut the bottom of the garlic and keep it in the fridge for a few days. The cool temperature and moisture will make the skin softer and will come out all at once. Also, if you are someone who likes to add the flavour pod to almost every recipe, then soak garlic overnight and peel it in the morning before storing it in the fridge for the week ahead.
