Quick Explanation: Roasted Garlic
This time of year in Florida garlic is locally grown, fresh and cheap so I will be roasting almost every week. When I roast I do at least 4 or more heads because it tastes wonderful on bread or in pasta. It also makes a beautiful addition to an antipasto tray. The key is never to under cook and use lots of olive oil.
Pre-heat your oven to 325. Prep the garlic by removing the lose skins and then slicing the top off.
Roast for 1-1.5 hours checking to be sure the garlic is slowly caramelizing and softening. You can store unused garlic in the fridge for a week at least.
