Roasted Garlic

I realized I hadn’t posted my roasted garlic technique yet and it is one of my favorite things.  It is so delicious and versatile.  You can add it to any dish you’d use plain garlic in and it’s even great smeared on toasted baguette.

  • a whole head of garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Trim about 1/4 inch off of the top of the garlic.  Place on foil square and drizzle olive oil over the top.  Sprinkle with salt and wrap foil around garlic head.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.  Allow to cool enough to handle before using.  Squeeze near bottom of head to remove cloves from skins.
