Last night, I made pickled garlic following the Bernardin home canning recipe. I smile at the prep time listed. Have you ever peeled 12+ large bulbs of garlic? It took me a tad longer than 20 minutes. My thumbnails are still throbbing.
The wine was for pickling purposes only. (Pickling the garlic, not myself).
The bottom three jars contain some chili flakes, the top two do not. It's hard to see in this picture, but the brine looks nicer with the chili flakes added.
