I am a very proud Granny of 5 ! I am also married to an AWESOME man . We have been married for 29 years now . And I love to visit my children & grandbabies to play and cook something for them . I used to cook at least 3 meals a day until I got disabled . So now it is like I am learning all over again and I must say I am having a good time at it. And I love meeting new people online & in person. I am also one of those crazy gals that love to have fun and goof off every chance I get !

I love all food except for the real spicy ! I guess my favorite would have to be the desserts .

at home (LOL), the Outback , chinesse , all steak houses , Italian ,

I love to travel with my hubby & by myself , every chance I get. I also enjoy finding and receiving recipes old and new . I love to garden and I have quite a few flowers that get a lot of raves about and of course if possible , I can I do share them . I also enjoy playing games on my PC.

the rest of the recipe -

7
Ladle the boiling vinegar mixture into the filled jars, leaving 1/2" headspace.
8
Use a chopstick or other thin, non-metal utensil to run around the sides of the jar to make sure there are no air bubbles left in the jar. Wipe the rims of the jars with damp paper towels to remove any brine which got on the rims or the threads. Place the lids and the bands on the jars, just tightening the bands fingertip tight.
9
Process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes, then remove and let sit, undisturbed, for at least 12 hours before checking seals. It is important to let them sit undisturbed for 12 hours because the sealing compound on the lids is still cooling and hardening, completing the seal. While the jars cool, you will hear a "plink" type sound from each jar - this is the jars completing the vacuum seal as the final air escapes the jar. After 12 hours have passed, remove the bands and check the lids - press down in the center of the lid. If you cannot push the lid down any further, the jar is sealed. If the lid "gives" a bit, and you can push it down, the jar did not seal. You can either put the band back on the jar, and reprocess it for another 15 minutes, or you can just put it in the fridge and use it within 3 months.
10
Let the garlic sit for at least a month before using, so the flavors can develop. The longer it sits, the better it gets.

Hello Cheryl -

here is a receip for you to try and you can halve it very easily to see how you like it -

3 lbs peeled whole garlic cloves
6 cups white vinegar
2 tablespoons pickling salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, divided
1/2 teaspoon celery seed, divided
1 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
12 peppercorns, divided
4 bay leaves

1
Fill a large bowl with ice and fill halfway with water. This is the ice bath you will use to stop the cooking after you blanch the garlic.
2
Bring a very large pot of water to a full rolling boil. Place all the garlic in the boiling water and blanch for 1 minute. Do not wait for the water to return to a boil, begin timing the minute as soon as you place the garlic in the water.
3
Drain the garlic and place it in the ice water bath. Let the garlic stay in the ice water until it is entirely cool.
4
In a large nonreactive pot, combine the vinegar, pickling salt and sugar. Bring just to a boil over high heat, stirring to make sure all the salt and sugar are dissolved.
5
Distribute the spices evenly between 4 pint jars: 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, 1/8 teaspoon celery seed, 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, 3 peppercorns and one bay leaf in each jar. If you are using Pickle Crisp, now is the time to add it. Add 1/4 teaspoon to each jar.
6
Distribute the garlic evenly between the 4 jars, leaving 1" headspace.
