Persian Sugar-Pickled Garlic

Ingredients (1 servings)

4 Heads garlic

2 c Red wine vinegar

2 c Water

1 c Sugar

6 Whole cloves (the spice)

2 tb Black peppercorns


Separate garlic cloves, but do not peel. Place all ingredients in a large heavy-bottom saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook for 10 minutes, stirring from time to time. Reduce heat to moderate and cook 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Transfer to a large glass or ceramic jar large enough to hold garlic and the liquid. Tightly seal. Refrigerate at least 1 month before serving. The garlic improves with age for as long as 15 years.
