Roasted Garlic

3 heads of garlic
2 tbs olive oil
Salt and pepper
Tin foil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Chop the tops of each head of garlic off, leaving the bulbs in tact but with the very top of the cloves showing. Place the garlic together on a piece of tin foil and drizzle the oil on top of the bulbs and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Tent the tin foil around the garlic and bake in the oven for 1 hour.

When the garlic comes out it should be soft and fragrant, with a roasted golden color on the top. You may be able to pull the cloves out with a fork of you could just squeeze the garlic out of the bulb and into a bowl. Roasted garlic is amazing in mashed potatoes, sauces, pasta and so on.

About annsley423

I work in Boston at an online retail company called Wayfair.com. I work within the Order Processing department, trying to stop fraudulent orders among other tasks. My company has a large catalogue of kitchen items, which has been both helpful (to my cooking) and detrimental (to my wallet). I am a self taught cook, learning mostly from watching cooking shows and doing trial and error within my own kitchen. I am making this blog as a way to share ideas and successes, as well as curb boredom in my small apartment. In my spare time besides cooking, I like to read, take pictures and have fun with my friends. I am also trying to learn more about wine and hopefully that will eventually be incorporated within the blog as well.
