Happy Tuesday TKW Family! Marrying into an Italian family garlic is an ingredient one must love and use, use often. I’m still waiting for some secret recipe from Nonna to emerge featuring garlic in a dessert. I’m giving it time though. For as much as they love garlic I’d be surprised there isn’t one! LOL Well with that you end up with seriously stinky garlic hands that no matter how much you wash them, that smell still is there.
This trick has been around forever but I didn’t really find out about it until I married into the family. My Mom never used garlic like this – meaning she never bought garlic in bulk. Yeah… I now do that. LOL
On this week’s edition of Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer we’re going to talk about getting rid of your Stinky Garlic Hands.
The theory behind this trick is that the sulfuric compounds in garlic bind to the ions on stainless steel surfaces, lifting away the tiny particles (and smell) of garlic from your hands. The cold water helps by shrinking your pores to keep the garlic oils out.
