Titli's Tips
This recipe will make just over one 400 g (14 oz) jar. You can eat it straight away but like most pickles it improves if kept for 2-3 months before opening.

If your garlic has started sprouting simply cut the blanched cloves in half and remove the green shoots. They don't have a particularly garlicky taste anyway.
