My friend Robbie was visiting from Maryland. She brought along some Spicy Pickled Garlic, which was absolutely delicious. Since she brought along only a small bottle of this divine pickle(!), we decided to Google recipes. After she left I made a small batch and it turned out surprisingly good! Although I did make some additions and changes to the recipe we found on line!
1/2 lb peeled small garlic pods(I sliced the larger ones in half lenghtwise).
1 1/3rd cups white vinegar
2 to 3 Hot dried Chili peppers(Arbol chili will do)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 Jalepeno- deseeded, sliced into quarters.
1/2 hot chili powder(optional)
1 Pint bottle
Boil the white vinegar, salt, sugar and the hot dried chillies for 5 minutes.Add the quartered Jalepeno and the garlic pods. Boil for 2 minutes. Add the chili powder when you add the garlic pods.
Pour into the pint bottle when still hot, release any air by swirling a knife around the contents. Seal
Let it rest for about 5 days before using.
