It's also not good to use the back side of the knife; I lost a couple of fingers pressing down on the blade side a few years ago. They should carry warning decals.

Tell us more, Stumpy.

Coincidentally, I did this very task today. Maybe its not coincidence, but karma.

First, I cut off the bottom. Then lay it on the cuttin' board and put the knife over it and give it a quick smash. I don't press & gently squeeze it- that's asking for trouble. I put the knife with the sharp side away and smack it hard, but briefly. Then the garlic usually pops right out and I'm uncut.

The garlic was for a sautée of mushrooms, leeks, the chopped garlic (see above), and EVOO with tuscan herbs.

When looking in the garlic storage container, I saw I was low on garlic in there and put more from the pantry in there. Then realized in horror that I have not used my store-bought garlic in a couple of weeks. I am disappointed with myself. So I used more garlic than usual tonight in the mushrooms. Yeah, that was the right decision.

To peel garlic, I just give my cloves a good squeeze with my fingers. To neutralize the garlic smell, just take your steely knife and rub your fingers along the blade with the edge situated away from your hand under running water. Easy peasy.

My ex caught me giving my "cloves" a good squeeze with my fingers, and kicked me out of the house...

Svetlana was an excellent operative. She got the info she needed and used the first excuse she could come up with to get rid of you. That's why she was awarded the Emperor Penguin Medal.

BTW, have you noticed the remarkable resemblance between your current S.O. and Svetlana? They look so much alike they could be twins.
