Ok, I admit it. I used to buy pre-peeled, chopped garlic at the grocery store. I thought it was so much easier to just buy garlic already peeled and chopped in those little ice cube trays from Trader Joe’s.

To me, it’s just not worth it. I’d rather use fresh garlic with all of the 10 amazing health benefits of garlic intact. Plus, I learned how to peel a whole head of garlic in just 10 seconds. It’s a piece of cake with this tutorial. Check it out.
