From what I’ve read, yes.  I hate to peel large amounts of garlic so I’m unlikely to try it. 

Sam’s is your friend (likely Costco as well). One-pound bags of peeled garlic cloves.

I think they sell Christopher Ranch which is a huge California producer. I usually get a bag from Korean market with huge turnover - probably from China. I like covering the cloves in olive oil and baking at low temp until brownish and creamy. Nice to have in the fridge.

I do the same but I just poach them stovetop in oil.

looks terrific !

 

Im keen to learn how you do this

 

inc.  jars , etc

 

thanks

The jars came from an Amazon returns kinda place (I think they are actually boba tea related). I liked them because they were tall. 
The pickling is brine is 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup water, 2 Tbs sugar, 1 Tbs salt. You’ll have to determine how much you need for the about of asparagus you have. Then pack asparagus in jars with sliced shallot, garlic clove and dill. I added a pinch of chili flakes and black peppercorns. Pour hot brine over and then refrigerate overnight.  These are just refrigerator type, not processed.

I’m Kennesaw, outside Atlanta, there is a store called The Last Dig. They have big boxes of returns, I think mostly from Amazon. You go in, and dig. Most days everything is $4, sometimes $3. I’ve gotten things like kitchen scales, bathing suits, a stainless steel coffee mug and warmer, a Breville espresso knock box I had been wanting.  Just never know what you will find. I’m always looking for cooking related stuff, so jars, storage containers, etc. I got 4 silpat mats for $4 this past weekend. I’m sure there are other stores like it, we just found it one day by accident.

Some quick pickled asparagus. My mom will wipe out a jar on her own. I prefer this kinda thing in a Bloody Mary. I don’t like celery.

Very nice. Haven't done it since I moved away from the land of cheap asparagus. When my nieces were young, I gave a jar to my brother's family and my sister in law was complaining because the girls were eating it all. I was like, "Heaven forbid kids should eat their vegetables!" So the next year I had to give them each a jar.
