Oh, I bet. I love to cook ethnic foods, and one of the seasonings that I use to make Puerto Rican food is called sofrito (don't ask me for the recipe - it took me 35 years to find a Latina who would let me in on the secret!). Anyway, I make my own sofrito, which contains a lot of garlic. Now, the easy way would be to buy the minced garlic in the jar, but NOOOO, I had to peel my own! My fingers were sore the next day, but the fingertips, where I actually peeled the garlic from were numb!
You have my sympathy.
By the way, did you use the nails method to make those cookie cutters, or did you bend them by hand?
