Tasty Tip of the Day: Getting at Garlic

Love the taste of fresh garlic but find the process of removing the outer layers too tedious and time consuming?  

The solution to your problem - a really good "WHACK!"

On a cutting board, lay clove flat on it's side, place a large knife over top and, with the heel of your hand, give it a solid knock.

The outer layer will crack away from the fleshy center.  At this point its super easy to just peel, cut off the little nub at the bottom, and mince, press, or brown… whatever your garlic, loving heart desires (that's a bit of a double entendre) *smirk* (as scientist have discovered that garlic really is good for reducing blood pressure and cholesterol).
