Ingredients needed to make the garlic syrup:

> 8 cloves of garlic .

> 300 ml of raw honey.

> 1 mortar or grater.

> 1 saucepan or pot.

> 1 spoon or other wooden utensil

> 1 wide-mouth glass bottle, tightly closed, preferably dark in color and clean.

Making homemade garlic syrup

1. Place the peeled garlic in the mortar and mash. If your mortar is not very big you will have to crush two or three garlic at a time. Another option is to grate the garlic with a grater.

2. Pour the garlic into the glass jar.

3. Add the honey.

4. Place the open pot in a saucepan with water to warm it up a bit in a water bath. Set the heat very low because we don’t want the honey to boil or get too hot. Move the contents of the jar from time to time with a wooden spoon. Once you notice that the honey begins to heat, turn off the heat and keep stirring the contents from time to time so that the garlic and honey are mixed well.

5. Remove carefully so as not to burn the jar that we have put in the saucepan. Add the vinegar little by little while stirring with the wooden spoon.

6. When the mixture has cooled completely, close the jar and place it in a cool, dark place protected from light. If the jar you are using is clear, you can cover it with a kitchen towel or rag. We left it like that for a week. Remember to move it a couple of times a day so that all the ingredients are well mixed.

After a week we can start using it.

This syrup lasts in perfect condition for 6 months. You must keep it in a dark and cool place.

Prepare this syrup at the beginning of winter to always have it on hand when you need it.
