Do you like meals with garlic? It is tasty and healthy but when I think about pilling it, I often quit because my hands get stinky and sticky and everything I touch after that absorbs that smell. My kitchen becomes a place for vampire extermination.

But I know that garlic is extremely healthy so I asked myself if it is worthy to exclude it from my daily meals only for its smelly juice?


There must be a better way to pill it without spreading the sticky juice all over your hands especially when you have to shake them with other people. So, I did a research and found out very interesting way of dealing with the garlic bulb.

I want to share it with you:

All you need is a glass jar with a lid. If you don’t have one you can use a plastic bowl and a wooden chopping board instead.

– Take the garlic bulb and put it in the glass jar, put the lid on and give it a good shake. Keep shaking until the bulb opens. Then open the jar and remove the outer skin.

Close it again and keep shaking and shaking to the moment the garlic cloves are completely out of the skin. You can now put them on a plate and remove the clean cloves with a fork.

You can do this at once and store the unused pilled garlic in the jar covered with olive oil or in a plastic food bag in your fridge.

Follow this advice and enjoy the taste and benefits of the garlic without having smelly and sticky hands.
