Making the marinated mini mozzarella -- 10 minutes + waiting time

Make sure the preserving jar is cleaned very well. The best way to do is, is boiling it shortly in boiling water. Peel the garlic cloves and coarsely chop them. Drain the mozzarella balls and throw away the water.

Combine the mozzarella balls with garlic cloves, chili and sprigs of basil. Add them to the jar and fill with olive oil until they're completely covered.
