Garlic adds a distinct and unique flavour to most meals. People add garlic in variety of meals ranging from yam porridge to stews. Garlic bread is even a thing! While garlic might be a food lovers delight, it’s not exactly the easiest thing to peel. This has made many desist from using it totally while some only use it sparingly.
A lady on Twitter shared a simple hack for peeling garlic.
“As someone who makes a lot of Korean food, this is the best method for getting garlic peeled”, She tweeted

The video shows someone holding a head of garlic in one hand and a very sharp small knife in the other. The pointy end of the knife is used to stab each individual clove. Then, the person appears to push up lightly before pulling out the clove. The garlic seems to easily slip out from the head of garlic.
“Not sure how I never knew about this. I lament when I consider how much more garlic I could have used during all these years had I only known of this technique,” one Tweeter responded. Another tweeted “this kind of info exchange is why the internet exists.”
