If you blanch the garlic for 3-4 minutes you don't have to wait a month for them to pickle.

Excellent recipe! We added lots of peppers and used apple cider vinegar instead of regular vinegar. It gave it a sweeter taste.

REALLY good! I love them and garlic is so good for you. No icky garlic breath! I added some jalapenos. Fabulous for gifts too.

Good recipe! But I think the garlic was too soft. I would simmer brine for 5 min and then add garlic and cook for 2 min max. For a crisp garlic clove.

Fantastic way to eat garlic. I add soy sauce to taste and reduce salt.
