Canning Garlic for Preservation

Canned Garlic Recipe

A basic recipe for pressure canning garlic.  This method is not approved by the USDA.  


  • 2 cups garlic cloves peeled
  • 1/2 tsp salt optional
  • boiling water


  1. Peel the garlic, and chop any extra large cloves.

  2. Pack a pint mason jar with garlic cloves, leaving at least 1 inch of headspace.

  3. Add one-half teaspoon of salt directly to the jar (optional).

  4. Fill the jar with boiling water, leaving 1 inch of headspace.  Attach 2 part canning lids and seal to finger tight.

  5. Process in a pressure canner at 10 pounds of pressure for 40 minutes.  Adjust pressure to altitude if you're above 1000 ft in elevation.  

Recipe Notes

Again, just a reminder that there is no USDA Approved method for canning garlic, and if you choose to can garlic, you do so at your own risk.
