Ingredients

  • Two large garlic bulbs (about 8-10 cloves each)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Remove loose, paper-like skin around the garlic bulb. Don't peel.
  2. Leaving the clove intact, cut the pointed ends off the garlic bulbs Put the bulb, cut side up, on a piece of foil.
  3. Drizzle the bulbs with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Wrap the bulbs tightly in the foil so the oil doesn’t leak out. Place the wrapped bulbs on a baking tray and bake at 400 degrees F for 40-60 minutes or until the cloves are tender and jam-like.
  5. Cool the roasted garlic for ten minutes.
  6. Remove the garlic bulbs from the foil packet. The garlic should now be soft and buttery in texture. Gently squeeze the roasted garlic into a small bowl. Discard the paper-like skins.
