Chinese Pickled Garlic
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup peeled fresh garlic cloves
1/2 cup rice or white wine vinegar
= (or distilled white vinegar)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pickling salt

Put garlic into sterile, half-pint jar. Stir together vinegar, sugar and
salt; pour liquid over garlic. Cover jar tightly with a nonreactive cap.

Store in refrigerator at least one month before using garlic. It will
keep well for one year in the refrigerator.

This recipe yields 1 cup.

Cook's note: I used commercially peeled garlic in this recipe. After a
week, I noticed that some of the cloves had turned a blue-green color.
Ziedrich said that the discoloration is harmless, and added that the
cloves that discolored were probably either immature or old.
