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.
