We use a lot of garlic in my house so I buy in bulk. I like to preserve it instead of having it go bad before I can use it.

You will need jars with good sealing lids and enough white vinegar to cover the garlic by one inch.

Bring the vinegar to a boil in a large pan. While the vinegar is boiling add garlic to jars leaving room for one inch of vinegar above the top of the garlic. Pour the hot vinegar over the garlic.

Put the lids on the jars. I let them cool before putting them in the fridge. They will keep for many months in the fridge or if you are into canning you can do that then they will be shelf stable.

I use the garlic straight from the jar. If you are making something that the vinegar taste would interfere with you can soak the garlic in hot water for five minutes.

The can be a chemical reaction that causes the garlic to turn blue. Do not worry! It is not dangerous, and it does not affect the taste. It just depends on the type of garlic you use.
