The refrigerator light goes on...

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.

Roasted Garlic

Servings: 6 | Serving size: 1/3 head of garlic (about 6 cloves)

I make up to about 4 heads of garlic at a time. This keeps well, tightly covered, for about 4 - 6 days.



Roasted garlic in a terracotta garlic roaster

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.
