We all know that good things are worth fighting for. And that's probably the only reason any of us bother peeling and chopping garlic. Garlic is stubborn and sticky, and doesn't want to shed its outer skin. But it does amazing things to our recipes, and so we battle it happily. Of course, we're also grateful for the hacks that make dealing with garlic easier.
