Specifically with her Pickled Garlic recipe? I followed the instructions to put it in the oven at 300 degrees until the garlic heads opened...well, they never did. And now I'm stuck with 12 heads of roasted garlic, which wouldn't be too bad except that the house reeks of garlic and it's making me feel nauseated.

So, has anyone managed to make the pickled garlic? Did you do it via the instructions she gives, or did you just peel the garlic while raw and go on from there?

PS: anyone have ideas as to what I should do with all this roasted garlic?

I had the exact same predicament!! : I don't really know what it means that the heads will open... My husband and I sat a picked all the cloves out and I made pickled garlic anyway. I didn't take *to* terribly long and the garlic was really good! My husband loved it, but I haven't made another batch for obvious resons...

That said, roasted garlic is great spread on bread! (But you'd have to eat a lot of bread!)

I'm going to have to make a lot of bread and buy a lot of potatoes. On the bright side, garlic is supposed to boost the immune system. I think that's because the smell of the garlic keeps everyone away!

It may have to do with freshness. try it again early in the season.
