You’ll find this recipe beyond description. If you are a garlic lover you will be in heaven, if you are not, you still will be amazed.
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 medium 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.
