I am not one for gimmicky kitchen gadgets – give me a lovely sharp knife and I am very happy but when Santa left me a garlic peeler I was a little wary until I used it on Boxing Day. To be honest, I thought it was yet another bit of rubbish to languish at the back of my kitchen drawer gathering dust.
How wrong I was! Used it for the first time on Boxing Day and I am hooked…….it was just amazingly easy to use and peel the garlic cloves without getting sticky, smelly fingers. Just drop one, two, three, four cloves in the curled silicone peeler, a quick roll with the palm of your hand on the work surface – and they are beautifully peeled in the blink of an eye. It’s magic.
Probably many of you already have one of these …… but if not, an extremely useful little kitchen helper to get. I know Santa found them in a garden centre, but they are also available on Amazon (and no, I don’t get commission!)
