Garlic can turn blue when it comes into contact with acidic stuff like vinegar or lemon juice or with tiny amounts of copper in water/cooking equipment etc. It's because of the sulphur content.

it's still safe to eat, though.

Lately when I cook garlic it seems to turn a bluish/grey colour in the pan, at first I thought this was because it had gone off, but it happened last night with cloves from a brand new bulb. Anyone have any ideas what this is or come across it? Thanks.
