King of the kitchen + medicine kit.
1. Peel organic garlic.
2.Cover with brine. Huge garlic will require more salt .. 1 tablespoon salt to 1 cup of clean water. Small variety … 1 tablespoon salt to 4 cups of clean water.
3. Submerge … Glass jars (Fido) place a small glass bottle on top (filled with brine) to avoid any floaters. or use a glass dunker.
Seal tightly and do not disturb. Place bottle / crock out of direct UV / sunlight. Loosely cover glass bottle with a dark tea towel or cotton tea cosy.
Small size garlic will be ready for taste testing in 4 weeks. 4 months for the big cloves to fully ferment but it will be soooo worth the wait.
The taste will be mellow. Perfect partner for fermented nut or dairy cheese.
Experiment with other alliaceous bulbs … onions, shallots, leek rings.
