Roasted Garlic

Roasting garlic is very simple and adds a whole other dimension to your favorites dishes.




Cut the top quarter off a head of garlic.



Place the garlic in a foil lined pan.

Rub extra virgin olive oil into the top of the cut garlic head and sprinkle with salt and pepper.




Turn the garlic over (cut side down) and bake in a 300 degree oven for one hour.



When garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the garlic head and the cloves will come out like toothpaste.

And if you eat two heads of it while the wife is out of town and she comes back two days later she'll be able to smell garlic coming out of your pores.
