"There is no such thing as a little garlic."

Roasted garlic is a staple in my kitchen and should be in yours. I generally roast about 3 heads every ten days or so. It makes a great ingredient in mashed potatoes and also enriches any sauce. It is fantastic served as hors d'oeuvres on bread with some soft goat cheese and veggies.
Servings: 6 | Serving size: 1/3 head of garlic (about 6 cloves)
Cooking Time: 45 Minutes
I make up to about 4 heads of garlic at a time. This keeps well, tightly covered, for about 4 - 6 days.
Preheat oven to 300°F.
Peel the outermost skin of the garlic only. With the bulb whole, turn on its side and slice 1/2-inch of the stem end off the garlic bulbs.
Pour the olive oil in the bottom of a heavy bottom sauce pan.
Place the garlic cut side down in the pan.
Cover and roast for 45 minutes until cloves are slightly brown at the cut end and soft throughout.
Serving size: 1/3 head of garlic (about 4 cloves)
