I always have a couple of jars of this hiding in my fridge somewhere, one with garlic and one without. The garlic will intensify the longer it is left and make the most wonderfully infused sauce, it is somewhat potent however so make sure to enjoy it with the people you plan to spend time with, you can all bolster your immune systems together!
