DIRECTIONS

  • Separate each clove of garlic and trim off the root ends and remove the outer skin. Peel the soft, filmy layer off with your hands.
  • In a sauce pan, place the cloves of garlic and cover with enough water by one knuckle height. Bring to a rolling boil and keep at a rolling boil for 1 minute. Drain and allow to cool completely.
  • Pat the cloves dry completely. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine the miso and mirin to make a paste.
  • Place one spoonful of the miso mixture in the bottom of a sterilized (by boiling water) small pickling jar and spread it around. Place a small layer of garlic cloves over the miso mixture. Place another spoonful of miso mixture over the garlic cloves and spread around.
  • Layer more garlic onto the miso mixture and continue to alternate until all cloves are covered. Let stand in a refrigerator. You can serve this after 7 days. It will a little strong at this point but will mellow even more after one month.
