So! Thanks to the advice here, I tried again and got a perfect result! Here's a pic and here's what I did.

Selected garlic cloves that were shedding (hopefully older)
After the garlic was peeled, I microwaved on high for 30 seconds, stirred and microwaved for 30 seconds longer. Then I went ahead as usual.

NO BLUE GARLIC! Not on clove. Peeked under the lid this morning@

Hostesses, teachers, friends, co-workers....let's share our favorite canned gifts! If you can, share pics too. I love packaging ideas, don't you? Nothing makes an impression like homemade, right? Well, maybe a new car.... but let's stick to canning!

Putting up jalapenos today but I am freezing them not canning. I am going to cook them with some onions and freeze them to have ready to eat when I need them

On the left, a jar of preserved lemon that is 10 1/2 months old (and almost gone). On the right, a jar I put up just a few days ago. Just so you know what to expect! It does keep for up to one year. Moroccan Preserved Lemons
