NEON GREEN GARLIC?!?
Tried my hand at making some pickled green beans yesterday. Brine was pretty simple... cider vinegar, sugar, spices, garlic. I heated up vinegar and sugar to about boiling to dissolve. Put spices... pickling spices, pepper corns, bay leaves... in a tea ball and just steeped while I started prepping veggies for jars. Blanched beans, THIN sliced onion and red peppers. While doing my slicing, realized I had forgotten the garlic... sitting right in front of me on counter. SO pulled out tea ball, heated brine back up and tossed in 4-5 smashed but basicallt intact cloves of garlic to steep. By the time I was ready to pour briine over packed jars, the garlic was BRIGHT GREEN??
Any idea why?
