Pickled Garlic with Hot Pepper

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

I have made these garlic pickles for the last 8 years and friends love them. The original recipe was in "Company's Coming" but I have made a few changes to suit my taste. It is a good recipe.

Easy and Excellent. How much better could it be? Great flavor with the jalapeno peppers but I am tempted to try this with habaneros just to 'heat' 'em up a little more. Definite keeper and definitely eager to see garlic season arrive.
