Garlic in oil

Ingredients: 300gr fresh peeled garlic, 2 rosemary branches, 500ml water, 2 tbsp salt, 1 tsp sugar, 150ml white wine vinegar, 24 ground black pepper grains, 500ml olive oil Clean the garlic one by one. Wash the rosemary branches and let it dry completely. Boil water with salt, sugar and vinegar. Cook the garlic for 5-10 minutes. Drain and dry on kitchen paper. Put the garlic into sterilized jars with the ground pepper and rosemary. Cover with oil and close the jars storing them in a dark and cool place for at least 2/3 weeks before eating. Store in the fridge or in a cool place after opening. Garlic can be used into salads, like an appetizer, with cold or hot meat dishes. You can also use the oil to flavour other dishes. from the book "Ricette per il Corpo e per l'Anima" by Eve Landis

the annoying side of this recipe is the peeling. peeling all that garlic takes a bit of time and a lot of patience. it is also better if you wear gloves, plastic gloves, like the semi-transparent for multi purposes, as peeling all that garlic can irritate your skin. let me know how it went :)
