So where is the garlic?

I love that you use the peelings on the potatoes. I think that it gives the potatoes a much earthier flavor than without, plus I like that it gives the food more nutrients. I like the texture of the peels too, do you? I know my family prefers the peels, so we will use this recipe a lot.
