Can I add garlic to soup before canning?

So I have been canning for a while, but just fruit preserves on my own.  But now really want to start stockpiling things.  I am nursing school and I think it will be a HUGE time saver not to mention money saver if I can just buy things when they are on sale and make and perserve it.

Anyway, I also make my own infused oils and about 3 months ago learned that you are not supposed to infuse garlic into oil and keep it longer than a week because it can bred botulism.

My question is, can the same happen if I am canning?  I am going to make 2 big pots of chicken and carrot soup tomorrow.  I add garlic to it, but obviously if its going to be a hazard I wouldn't.

Obviously anything else I should know and avoid would be GREAT.

I always use approved canning recipes to be safe. Improperly canned food can be deadly!
