Making your own Delicious Roasted Garlic is so simple you’ll wonder why you haven’t made it before.

Do you love garlic as much as I do? I use fresh garlic in many of my recipes. I love the flavor and it is good for you. In the summer I try to find ways to use and preserve all the fresh produce I can. Garlic is delicious raw and it’s even more delicious roasted. It’s easy to do.

You’ll need:
garlic heads
extra Virgin Olive Oil
aluminum foil

First remove the outer skin on the garlic bulbs. Leave the skins on the individual cloves. Using a sharp knife cut about 1/4 inch off the tops to expose each clove.

Place the garlic head in a small piece of foil (enough to wrap the garlic head).


Drizzle the olive oil over the clove. Make sure each clove is coated with oil.

Wrap tight, and place into a small baking dish.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 30 minutes. When you squeeze the garlic it should feel soft.

Remove from the oven. Be careful they will be very hot. Allow them to cool.

Pop them out of the remaining skins using a knife or small fork. You can mash them to use in recipes. If you love garlic like I do you can spread them on a cracker and eat them that way 🙂 You can also mix them with butter and spread on bread for some out of this world garlic bread!
