How to Roast Garlic

I love roasting garlic. It it so easy and in case you don’t know how to, I thought I would post it.

1 head of garlic
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 375.  Peel off any excess paper surrounding the garlic bulb but don’t take it so that it separates.  Cut off the top of the bulb.  Use the extra little garlic pieces in something you are making that calls for fresh garlic right now!  Drizzle the top with olive oil making sure to coat the whole bulb.  Wrap in tin foil and place on a baking sheet.  Roast for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown (check it at the 30 minute mark.)

When the roasted garlic is cool, squeeze out all of the garlic, making sure to get every last drop!  Place the garlic in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use or freeze in ice cube trays.

It is great in mashed potatoes, in cashew ricotta, in soup, as a spread on toast…
