I know that everyone who has read this blog has now gone out and made their own pickled garlic! So I have a few suggestions on what you can do with it.
First, and by far my favorite, is to used it in salads. Pickled garlic has a wonderful mild flavor. It’s not too vinegary, and the pickling process makes it far more mellow than a normal clove of garlic. This makes it much better for using in salads, because it adds a ton of flavor to otherwise bland lettuce, without all of the calories of globs of salad dressing. I now make all of my salads with a small handful of cloves.
They also make a great topping for a nice big stuffed sandwich! Try a few small cloves in a turkey (or tofurky) sandwich, and I guarantee that you will fall in love!
I’ll post more uses of pickles of all sorts once I do some more experimenting. The Firefox books have some great sounding pickle recipes that I think that I am going to try out next week.
