  • garlic, peeled
  • raw local honey

    Special Equipment

    • wide mouth mason jars
    • Masontops weight and pickle pipe, optional


    • Place garlic in clean, dry mason jar and leave a good amount of headspace – things are going to get frothy
    • Cover your garlic with honey without infringing on that headspace (I have warned you twice, so...)
    •  Add weight to keep garlic submerged and install your pickle pipe
    • Set in a cool, dark place and wait impatiently for four weeks, but do check on it to ensure the garlic stays submerged


    1. For the large jar in the photo, we used six bulbs of garlic and two cups of honey. Be sure your honey is raw and local is always best!
    2. If you don't have a pickle pipe, you can use a regular lid. Just be sure to burp the jar every few days.
