I recently acquired about 20 heads of garlic. I've been trying to think of new ways to use it so we don't waste any. One of thing that I had always seen done on tv but had never tried myself was roasting garlic. I figured that this was the best time to try it out, if it didn't work... I still had more garlic.
It was seriously easy and made the garlic almost sweet. It got really soft and I was able to just squeeze the cloves out.
1 head of garlic
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the top of the garlic off.
Place the head of garlic in a piece of parchment paper or foil and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper.
Wrap the garlic up and cook for 30 minutes.
