Marinated garlic-how long will it keep?

I want to marinate a lot of garlic cloves for future snacking. Planning to use standard ingredients of apple cider vinegar (Bragg's if it makes a difference), olive oil, agave nectar, black pepper and dried herbs such as oregano or basil and adding garlic cloves that I'll blanch for 3 minutes or so. Any idea how long this will be safe in the refrigerator? I know garlic cloves in olive oil don't keep for too long, but am assuming the vinegar will prolong the viability. I'd appreciate any information from anyone with experience doing this.

  1. My garlic cloves have been marinating for a few weeks now and theyre still good eats. I know if you buy crushed garlic packed in olive oil, that keeps for a few months...
