sorry...i forgot to check back on this thread.


it made 2 500ml jars, 3 250ml jars and 3 125ml jars


if i am remembering correctly. i made 3 batches already so i cant just count the jars. heh heh heh. what i did is beforhand i put all the garlic into the jars and sterilized that many plus 2 just in case. if you blanch the garlic for a littlebit longer, saw 45 seconds instead of 30 the peel comes off nicely. we kept accidently shooting garlic across the room if you squeeze just a bit too hard the garlic acts like a slippery bar of soap! lol


and yes, it is water bath canned.

Thanks Pixie. I made one batch, a week ago. I haven't tasted it yet, because I'm of the opinion that pickling needs some time to do it's thing. My batch made almost 3 pint jars (that would be your 500ml jar I believe...about 2 cups).


It seemed like the garlic could've blanched longer, and I was planning to try 45 seconds if I make this recipe again. Glad to know that it worked well for you.


It looks really pretty. I can't wait to try it. If it's as tasty as it looks, I think I'll do some 1/2 pints for gifts.

I am told to wait about 3 months for the pickleing to pickle.

I still make this every year, in 3kg batches. I've changed the recipe some...

I use dry white wine, i replaced the oregano with cilantro and the crushed chillies i replaced with whole fresh hot peppers, and no picking spice. I also add chunks of onion to reach jar. 

Happy 10 years of pickled garlic!!!
