Sahadi's (Brooklyn) Pickled Garlic Recipe?
Has anyone reverse engineered the recipe for the pickled garlic available at Sahadi's?
The flavor and texture is much better than what's available at other places like The Pickle Guys. They're very addictive, which is bad at $8/lb (when I can buy peeled fresh garlic for ~$1/lb).
One of the workers mentioned that it was imported and wasn't able to give a recipe. So while I maybe not get the same type of garlic in the US, I figure it should be close enough.
They are mostly normal sized cloves of garlic with some fat plumpers. So, I doubt they are young, though perhaps unaged. Maybe also a variety available in the MidEast that we don't get here. It's close enough that I think the right pickling solution would do it.
Since we haven't gotten any responses, I guess I better get to work on it.
