Tuesday Tips - Garlic Stink

Earlier in the month I posted about how you peel garlic. I love cooking with garlic and eating garlic but have you ever noticed how the smell lingers on your hands after you work with it? It seems no matter how much you wash your hands there is still a garlic scent. There are two simple ways to eliminate that smell from your fingers:
  1. Ginger - With Chinese cooking garlic and ginger are natural compliments. Simply cut the garlic first and the ginger second. The juice from the ginger removes the garlic scent and stickiness.
  2. Stainless Steel - Simply rub your hand on something stainless steel...a knife (though that could be dangerous), pot or even your sink. The smell comes right off.
Or if you like kitchen gadgets and gizmos you could buy this nifty bar. It's simply a soap shaped stainless steel bar. We got one for my mother-in-law years ago and it works like a charm!
