Roasted Garlic


Garlic bulb


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact.
  3. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, expos- ing the individual cloves of garlic.
  4. Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this purpose.
  5. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 -35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  7. Use a knife to cut the skin slightly around each clove.
  8. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
