Microwave Magic - Peeling An Onion Or A Head Of Garlic




To Peel Onions...
Place onions on a covered microwave-safe plate and cook for 1 to 2 minutes at full power. Careful, the onion may be hot. I only need to cook a medium size onion for 50 seconds. The skin just peels right off and I don't "loose" so much of the onion this way.

To Remove Outer Skin from Garlic Cloves...
Put the cloves in a custard cup and microwave at 80% power for 30 seconds. Allow the cloves to cool enough so you can handle them, then lift away the skin.
