Add pickled garlic cloves to soups, sauces and marinades to help keep winter illnesses at bay.

Ingredients:

• Peeled garlic cloves
• Apple cider vinegar, enough to cover
• Raw local honey, to taste

Instructions:

1. Fill Mason jar with cloves and cover with apple cider vinegar. Keep in a warm, dark place for 3 to 4 weeks. (I like to put my jars in a paper bag and place in the sun.)

2. After a few weeks, strain liquid and set aside.

3. Pour half the liquid into a small saucepan over very low heat and stir in honey until fully incorporated.

4. Pour this back over the garlic and allow to sit for another 3 weeks in a cool dark place, such as your pantry.

5. Eat a clove of the pickled garlic whenever you wish, but for treating cold or flu, eat 3 to 5 cloves a day.
