  1. In a food processor or blender, blend the garlic and 1/2 cup of vinegar until smooth. In a 6 to 8 quart saucepan, combine the garlic mixture, remaining 1 1/2 cups vinegar and sugar. Over high heat bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Quickly add the pectin. Return the mixture to a boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
  2. Immediately fill five, sterilized half pint jars with the jelly, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Wipe the jar tops and threads clean. Place hot sealing lids on the jars and apply the screw on rings loosely. Process in boiling water in a deep canning pot for 5 minutes. Remove the jars and cool completely. Tighten the jar screw rings to complete the sealing process.

* Really excellent! * Make a double batch. Your friends will take it home with them! * Also try the exact same recipe - but add a head of so of roasted garlic - and float a few cloves, as well. It really mellows the flavour.

this was absolutely awful! The smell and taste were not at all appetising - and i love garlic! it used a whole bag of sugar and basically was a waste of ingredients. i wont be making this again

A good and easy recipe. however, I think the distilled vinegar made it a bit too sharp. I am going to play with the ingrediences a bid...use a different vinegar and try roasted garlic as well.

I've never rated a recipe on here before, but I made a batch of this astounding jelly yesterday and am getting ready to make another one today to give as gifts. Since I LOVE garlic, I may try adding some more garlic cloves to what I make today and use yesterday's for gifts. I also want to try the roasted garlic mentioned by another user. Absolutely excellent recipe.

I love garlic, and thought this would be interesting to try; unfortuantely it wasn't all I had hoped. Could be personal taste, but I found the garlic/sugar/vinegar mixture ended up tasting just like it sounds, and the flavours didn't blend nicely. I now have 12 jars of garlic jelly, and don't know what to do with it...

I made this recipe and gave it out to a few friends. Those who love garlic will love this. I have used it on pork and baked chicken. Next time, I will use roasted garlic.

I had planned to give this as Christmas gifts. I love garlic and thought this would be delicious. It didn't live up to my expectations and I ended up making jalapeno jelly instead.

EXCELLENT! my husband cannot get enough of this and has been giving it to friends to try. it is wonderful and he likes to mix a half pint with half a stick of butter and heat in microwave till liquid. then either add pizza toppings (sounds weird but very good) and put on texas toast or put straight on t.t. and sprinkle with garlic powder. so good, haven't made it to meat marinade yet. may try to mellow it only a tad. love it!!!
