Denise, how big are the cloves of garlic you're using.  If you use the bought peeled garlic, I find they are usually small and mine ended up mushy so now I buy fresh garlic with the biggest cloves I can find.  If you can only find smaller cloves then I'd suggest keeping an eye on them during the cooking process, they obviously don't need cooking as long.  At the end of the day though it doesn't matter how they end up, garlic is delicious done this way.  If giving as gifts though I can understand we would want them to look more presentable.

I made this but they were mashed up quite a bit but still they get mashed up in cooking so I am not worried. Only problem was that the fridge got a bit crowded and my jar fell out and smashed. Will make some more though but I could have cried because it was beautiful fresh garlic. A real Oops moments.

I think it's the quality of garlic that's available to buy here Judy.I do pick the bulbs with the biggest cloves.I need to play around with the recipe and do as you suggest and use less cooking time.There is a renowned garlic grower on the Isle of Wight so will try to source the garlic from there.
