Hi Herbalmom,
Here is the recipe, it is from the book Herbs for Health and Healing by Kathi Keville - GREAT BOOK!

Garlic Vinegar:
4 garlic heads, divided into individual cloves (I don't peel them)
1 Pint Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbs Honey or glycerin (I leave this out)

Using a blender, (my Vitamix works GREAT!), blend the unpeeled garlic cloves and vinegar thoroughly.  Transfer the mixture to a covered container and let sit at room temperature for at least 2 weeks.  Strain and discard the garlic.  if you wish to sweeten the vinegar, add honey, glycerin or the sweetener of your choice.  (Remember that honey should not be given to children under 2 yrs old).  To treat parasites for a 50 lb child, give at least 3 tsp daily.  You can also use this formula now and then as a preventative measure.  This versatile preparation is good to have around to treat many different conditions.  Stored in a cool place, it will keep for many years."

Here's a funny thing.  I mentioned my kids like it.  My husband takes it alot but kind of gags on it.  He had a sinus infection today and I made him something I found on WTM.  6oz warm H2O, Garlic steeped 10 min, some ACV, Honey and Cayenne.  He took it and asked for more!!!  He liked it.  I am now positive that most people must be able to acquire a taste for it.  I just don't know when I will be desperate enough to get there!
