Ahhhhh Garlic! I love everything about garlic. I love the smell when I’m preparing garlic. I love the fragrance when cooking minced garlic in oil. I even love the smell of garlic on my fingers that just wont come off with one wash – too much information! Most of all I love the flavour garlic adds to dishes.
I came across a great deal on garlic at a local store. Roughly 2 lbs of garlic on sale. My immediate reaction was to buy the garlic and process it somehow for storage or future use. I’ve pickled Jalapeno Peppers, but never garlic. This recipe is simple and the results are delicious.
You can use the pickled garlic in many ways including eating whole cloves as a little snack, slicing or "rasping" and adding to salads or sautés, adding to soups, etc. The options are endless.
Please note, we are NOT canning! This is a simple and quick recipe to provide you an abundant supply of infused garlic for 2 to 3 weeks. ALWAYS check the bottle when using the garlic. The garlic should smell, well, like fresh aromatic pickled garlic!
Enjoy the recipe! Cook Well! Eat Well!
