We like garlic, but wouldn’t consider ourselves to be garlic lovers. Yet, we love Rabbit’s Garlic. The picked garlic is made in five flavors, each of which can be served at every meal from breakfast to dinner and snacks. We’re giving jars as Father’s Day gifts.
The creator is a nurse named Bunny, called Rabbit by her husband. She had long been preserving fruits, meats and vegetables for family and friends until she was convinced to go commercial. Try her pickled garlic, and you’ll be glad she did!
When Bunny started to add garlic cloves to season jars of dilly beans, everyone started to fight over the garlic cloves. Thus the first flavor of pickled garlic was born: Spicy Dill. The line now includes:
Chipotle Pickled Garlic
Habanero Pickled Garlic
Habanero Dill Pickled Garlic
Smoke Pickled Garlic
Spicy Dill Pickled Garlic
You’ll find many ways to use these delicious pickled garlic cloves. For starters:
Beer: Pop a clove into the bottle.
Bloody Mary or Martini: The Spicy Dill flavor is great as a Bloody Mary or Martini garnish.
Bruschetta: Mash the garlic cloves and spread on toasted bread.
Eggs: In omelets and scrambles, in deviled eggs and as a garnish.
Garlic Butter/Garlic Bread: Mash the garlic cloves with softened butter to spread on bread; toast under the broiler.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes: The smoke flavor is great for this. Mix sliced and smashed cloves into the mashed potatoes.
Salads: Add cut up cloves to egg, chicken, green, potato, macaroni, tuna and other salads.
Snack and Relish: Straight from the jar, or serve them like pickles or olives as a snack. A reason to revive the relish tray!

Marinade: Mash onto steaks and chops during grilling or add to the marinade for 1-2 hrs before cooking.
Meat Seasoning: Cut slits in the side of beef or pork roasts before cooking. The flavor is subtle but well worth trying.
Pasta Sauce: Add to your favorite pasta sauces, or toss with the pasta.
Sandwiches & Burgers: A memorable garnish.
Bunny also sent us some garlic brittle: We tasted it gingerly, now we’re addicted!
