Jo's Pickled Garlic
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup wine vinegar
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon regular Mrs. Dash seasoning
1/8 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup sugar
5 cups garlic cloves - (to 6 cups) -- peeled, and
cut to uniform size, if necessary
Rosemary -- to taste
Oregano -- to taste

Boil vinegar, water, seasoning, salt and sugar together for 5 minutes. In
hot, sterilized jars, place a pinch each of rosemary and oregano. Jars
can be kept hot in the oven, at 225 degrees, after sterilizing.

Add garlic cloves (half at a time) to the boiling brine for about 1
minute, then place cloves in jars. Bring brine to a boil again and fill
jars 1/2-inch from the top. To release air pockets in jars, insert knife
blade in center and all sides; add brine, if needed, and seal. Wait about
a week to allow garlic to pickle.

This recipe yields 5 to 6 half-pint jars.
