    The garlic turned blue because of the sulfur in the garlic reacting with copper in any number of things, to include the water used to grow the garlic.  The reaction is from the addition of the vinegar, or at least the acid within.  The acid set off the reaction.  There is nothing wrong with the garlic.  I almost threw out a batch of pickled garlic the first time it happened to me.

    It still makes great garlic pickles.
