Those of us that love garlic, tend to add it to almost everything!  If you find you have a lot on hand, try roasting some in the oven to be used both immediately and later on.

Oven Roasted Garlic:

Ingredients:

Whole heads of garlic

Olive oil

Salt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Chop the tops off the heads of garlic, so that the cloves are exposed (most of them anyway).  Place in a single layer in a baking dish with a lid.  You can use as many heads as you like, as long as they fit in a single layer.

Drizzle generously with olive oil.

Sprinkle with salt.

Cover and roast until the garlic is soft, and the tops are golden brown, about 30-45 minutes.

When cool enough to handle, squeeze the garlic out of each head.

Eat it as is – it’s a great accompaniment to just about any dish.  Add it as flavouring to other dishes – the resulting flavour is milder and sweeter than you would get with regular garlic (it’s particularly nice in mashed potatoes).  Add to crackers with a bit of cheese as an appetizer.  Refrigerate or freeze for later use.  The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy
