I wonder if I can use something else besides soy sauce. I wonder if it will taste right if I add apple cider vinegar instead of soy sauce at the end. I'll try to make it when I have some free time. Considering all the ingredients that Jualsy have mentioned, it sounds easy enough. Good job Jim!

High guys, been away for a while.

I experimented with pickling garlic last year and had a time of it. It just didn't come out like the stuff I bought at a little tourist spot in southern Utah made by some local farm lady. So I finally decided that maybe she was parboiling it first...so I may try that next.

Garlic can and often does turn green or blue when you pickle it.. it has to do with its copper content. It is not an issue and can be eaten anyway. No way can mold grow in a bottle of pickled garlic!

For my cheating process I by those bottles of olives stuffed with garlic. When they are all gone I load the jar up with fresh garlic cloves and let them soak in the fridge for about 3 months before eating....they are still quite hot...and not as good as the original garlic in the olives....makes me think they are par boiling those too...but they are good enough and we eat several cloves a day.

Recently been working pediatrics with a family into alternative health. This mom has all her kids drinking "Garlic Juice" starting when they are very little. She takes several fresh cloves and blends them up in a cup of water, strains then they drink it.. I was amazed seeing these little three and six year olds drinking this stuff without argument.

Whats wrong with soy sauce? I purchase organic brands from the healthfood store. I use it quite frequently in many dishes.

That's an excellent idea. I love those stuffed olives. I would actually rather have "harder" cloves anyway. Thanks arrow.

Nothing is wrong with soy sauce or soy products if it's fermented. I recently read an article on NaturalNews.com about soy and its negative effects if it's not fermented. I'm not sure if soy sauce is fermented, but I do like many soy products, even soy beans by itself. Now, I guess I have to try to avoid it if it's not fermented.

I would provide you the link to the article but not sure how to go around it.

Soy sauce is fermented. I use only organic due to a chemical found in the inorganic that was recently found...don't remember the whole story now.

Do you know if I can use fermented soy products since I have a thyroid issue? The "wellness" doctors told me to avoid all soy products, even soy lecithin in chewing gum. Is this controversial?

If I had to deal with that, I'd freak out, seriously. I would opt for the removal just because of the association of breast lumps with breast cancer. But, I guess it wouldn't hurt since it's benign.
