In This Recipe


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Peel as much of the papery skin off the garlic without loosening the garlic cloves from the base of the bulb.
  3. Cut off as little of the top of garlic that you can while exposing the tops of all the cloves.
  4. Get a piece of aluminum foil out that is large enough to cover the whole piece of garlic and set the bulb in center.
  5. Drizzle the garlic top in olive oil until it is completely covered and seeping down the inside. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Wrap the garlic up tight but do not rip the foil while doing so or else the oil will seep out while cooking.
  7. Place in oven on a baking sheet or baking stone and let roast until it is golden and has slight caramelization around it, about an hour depending on the size of the garlic bulb .
  8. Let cool and then slip the cloves out by squeezing the ends.
  9. Use immediately, store in olive oil in fridge for no more than four days, or freeze and use as needed.
