Thai Pickled Garlic
Peeling five heads of garlic can be quite the time commitment. For a crafty, time-saving solution, buy pre-peeled garlic at the supermarket.
A trick for keeping the garlic cloves intact when you peel them: Squeeze the ends of each clove together. The papery sheath should crack open, making it easy to peel. The garlic has a tendency to turn bluish-green as it pickles. It may look odd, but blue-green garlic is perfectly safe to eat.
