Have I been peeling garlic wrong?

That's the question many social media users are pondering after a video of a woman peeling garlic went viral. 

While there are many methods to the perfect peel, a video posted to Twitter has shocked and delighted social media users by showcasing a little-known trick. 

The video shows someone using a knife to stab individual cloves before pulling them off the head of garlic.

The person who shared the video captioned it: "As someone who makes a lot of Korean food, this is the best method for getting garlic peeled!"

The clip was so popular it drew the attention of model and cook Chrissy Teigen, who tweeted, "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT" in response. 

Social media users were blown away, with many saying they wish they knew about the clip sooner. 

"Not sure how I never knew about this. I lament when I consider how much more garlic I could have used during all these years had I only known of this technique," one user wrote. 

Another marvelled over all the time they could have saved. 

However, some people voiced concern over the safety of the trick. 

"My husband just said I'm absolutely not allowed to try this method . . . I'm way too accident prone," someone else tweeted. 

Since the video was shared two days ago, it has racked up 11.6 million views and more than 300,000 likes.
