1 quart glass jar. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 24 to 36

Pour flavored vinegar through a wire strainer into a bowl, pressing garlic
with the back of a spoon to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Discard
residue. Measure liquid and add vinegar if needed to make 2 cups.

To use liquid pectin: In a 5 to 6-quart kettle, combine flavored vinegar,
water and sugar. Bring to a full, rolling boil over medium-high heat. Stir
in pectin and bring to a boil that cannot be stirred down. Boil, stirring
constantly, for 1 minute.

and pectin. Bring to a full, rolling boil over medium-high heat, then stir
in the sugar. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil that cannot be stirred
down and boil for 2 minutes.

If desired, stir in 2 drops of red, yellow or orange food coloring. Skim off
and discard foam, then spoon hot jelly into hot, sterilized, 1/2-pint
canning jars to within 1/4" of rim. Wipe rims clean with a damp cloth; top
with scalded lids and bands.

Place jars on a rack in a canning kettle and cover with boiling water.
Simmer for 10 minutes. Lift jars from canner and set on folded towels to
cool. Before storing, test for a good seal; refrigerate any jars that did
not seal.

Yield: 3 1/2 pints.
