To make, put 4 to 6 minced garlic cloves in 1 quart of cider vinegar. Let stand, covered for 20 days. Strain, then bottle.

Cover peeled garlic cloves with vinegar and soak the cloves for 12 to 24 hours.

Drain off the vinegar. It can be reused as garlic-flavored vinegar. Cover the garlic cloves with oil.

Refrigerate the jar of garlic and oil, and use it within 3 months.
