Honey Marinated Garlic Cloves

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by stormylee

A wonderful companion to main dishes or sandwiches... heck, I even like to snack on these! I recall this makes about 1 litre, but I've used several smaller jars *and* just got rid of all of them when we moved, so I'm afraid I can't check it right now. Still, many smaller jars (say, 200 ml jars) are better than one big one. Add a few twigs of fresh rosemary into the jars for added flavour and that final aesthetic touch!

Cloves are still very garlicy when finished. I tried letting them sit over a week in the fridge and they tasted like slightly flavored garlic.
