How to: Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic is a magical thing.  When heads of garlic spend some time in a hot oven they get rich and caramelized and sweet.  It’s pretty spectacular.  It’s also very easy to do.

Preheat oven to 450°F.  Tear off a piece of aluminum foil that’s big enough to wrap your garlic head(s) in tightly, set aside.

Cut off about 1/3 of the top of your garlic head, so that you can see all the different clove segments.  Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of kosher salt.  Place garlic head(s) in foil, cut side up, and wrap tightly.  Place in preheated oven and bake for about 40-50 minutes, until golden brown on top.  Unwrap and let cool before squeezing out the roasted garlic cloves.
