Let's Get Pickling: Your DIY Garlic Pickling Guide 👨‍🍳

Step 1: Peeling and Prepping Your Garlic - Let's Get Started! 👌

Start by peeling the garlic cloves. You can make this task easier by lightly smashing the cloves with the flat side of a knife - the skin should slip right off. Once all your garlic is peeled, set it aside.

Step 2: Crafting the Perfect Brine - A Flavorful Voyage 🥣

Next, we'll prepare the brine. In a saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, pickling spice, and red pepper flakes. Bring this to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt.

Step 3: It's Pickling Time - Dive in Your Garlic! 🌊

Now, add your peeled garlic to the boiling brine. Let it boil for about a minute, and then turn off the heat. Allow the garlic and brine to cool completely.

Step 4: Storing Your Pickled Garlic - Preserving the Goodness 🏺

Once cooled, transfer the garlic and brine into a clean, airtight jar. Make sure the garlic is completely submerged in the brine. Seal the jar and store it in the refrigerator.

Your pickled garlic will be ready to eat in about a week, but it will continue to develop flavor over time. It can last up to a year in the fridge.
