Refrigerator Pickled Garlic

Refrigerator Pickled Garlic

I loooooooove Pickled Garlic. If I’m not careful, I’ve been known to eat more than half of a jar of it in one sitting. Which is bad for a couple of reasons – but one of them is, the stuff is expensive to use as a snack. :-)   I’ve seen small jars selling for $8 or more. Since I was trying out making Mr. Man some hot sauce, I thought it would be a good time to try out making pickled garlic as well, since the ageing time is about the same. If this little experiment goes well, the hot sauce and the garlic, I might just have to consider getting some specialized equipment and actually try canning. :-)

I’ll update in a couple of weeks to tell how it went. :-)

Update – 2/20/09 – Sampled the garlic earlier this week (appx 4 weeks in the fridge), and found that it still had a bit of a “raw” bite, so I’m going to let it go for a few more weeks and try it again.
