Making pickles can be time-consuming, but this method for easy garlic pickles couldn't possibly be any easier. Or tastier!

1. Slice peeled garlic cloves in half. Drop in a canning jar.
2. Pour your favorite kind of vinegar over the garlic cloves.
3. Add a tablespoon of coarse sea salt.
4. Screw lid on, shake jar, and store in the refrigerator for up to a couple months.

Feel free to add other veggies, such as hot and sweet peppers or cucumbers, to the mix. You can also add herbs, such as dill, thyme and rosemary. For sweeter pickles, add a tablespoon of sugar along with the salt.
