Need spicy pickled garlic recipe

Midlife May 31, 2011 05:01 PM

I just fell in love........... with Cherith Valley Gardens "hot 'n Spicy" Pickled Garlic, made in Forth Worth, TX. The ingredients listed are Garlic, Water, Vinegar, Jalapeño peppers, spices, and salt. Each 16oz jar has one large jalapeño in it and one large red pepper (maybe a ripened jalapeño?) Also looks like some dill week in there.

I found a few online recipes for pickled garlic, but none seemed to be like this. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

        pickles are very flexible. rice vinegar. cider vinegar. white, champagne, sherry, etc, all good, all give a different taste. more salt than you think, as thats what makes a pickle a pickle.

      The lazy man's recipe would be to add more peeled garlic cloves to the jar when you've finished what's in there.

        hay-ull yes! just slice up some fresh garlic and drop into a jar of pickled jalapenos...in a few days, heaven! Learned this trick right here on CH...works beautifully!

          I LIKE that idea!!!! I always see jars of peeled garlic at our local Persian markets and wonder what I'd do with so much at one time. Now I know.

            We toss any number of things into pickle jars when the pickles are gone, more cukes, baby carrots, garlic. Pickle juice is the nectar of the gods and should never go to waste (you can add a shot to a bloody mary also).

              I grew up having it added to my tomato juice, so that last one came easy. ;o)
