Pickled Garlic

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by T. Woolfe

I don't remember where I found this but it's handy and tasty. I do this when the garlic is fresh and plump so I have some when the market doesn't. Good to cook with, just peel as needed.

Oh yumyumyum! TWoolfe, my friends whom I breathe upon shall curse your name, but I love your pickled garlic. :) Thank you! I'm thinking of tossing in some strips of jalapeno into the next batch.
