Do you love garlic? I love garlic and try to find ways to sneak it into recipes. I put minced garlic in homemade pasta sauce or beef stew. I love to make garlic butter with fresh garlic. I also add whole clove roasted garlic to bread dough and when I cook a roast I add it into the carrots and potatoes. One of my absolute favorites is a roasted garlic cheeseburger.

Recently, I discovered how easy it is to make your own roasted garlic. It takes no time at all, it tastes amazing, and you have a ready made batch to add to all kinds of recipes! I keep mine in a mason jar with olive oil in the fridge. You can easily make a large batch to use in your cooking and baking for about a week or so.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Peel off any loose skin from the bulbs. Then, cut 1/4 to 1/2 inch off the top of each bulb to expose most of the garlic.

3. Lay a large piece of foil in the pan. (I used a cake pan)

4. Place the garlic about 1 inch from each bulb. Then drizzle the open part of the garlic with olive oil. Add salt and pepper, if desired.

5. Fold up the foil, sort of like a Hershey’s kiss, so that it’s completely closed.

6. Roast for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from the oven when garlic is turning golden brown.

7. Let cool completely. Then, gently squeeze the cloves out of the bulb directly into a jar.

8. Cover the garlic with olive oil, seal, and refrigerate 7 to 10 days.
