[music] I think they're about ready now. Certainly I can
tell tat the Jalepenos are completely soft. I'm going to
check the garlic once I get it all off here
and let it cool fo a second. And this is
exactly what I'm looking for. So take a clove of
the garlic and twist it between your fingers. It it
has some give, then you know it's completely soft, that
means it's gonna be aromatic and sweet, not strong garlic
flavor. And then once they've cooled to the point where
you can handle them You just pop each one out
of it's papery skin and it'll just come right off.
