It’s much easier — and less frustrating — to smash garlic cloves before you peel them. Just lay the clove on a cutting board and give it a whack or two with a wooden mallet or the flat side of a large knife blade. The smashed skin will slip right off. You can then mince the pungent sections or use them as is.
