ROASTED GARLIC

 

  • Cooking Time: 45-60
  • Servings: varies
  • Preparation Time: 20

Ingredients

  • 64 oz jar of peeled garlic or about a dozen bulbs of garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup canola oil

Directions

  • Cut off brown (hard) ends of garlic and put into saucepan.
  • Cover garlic cloves with oil and set on lowest heat setting.
  • Stir occasionally making sure that garlic does not burn.
  • As it garlic cooks it you will notice a change in smell to a sweet almost nutty scent.
  • Cook for about 45 minutes - this is approximate, just keep cooking until all cloves are buttery soft.
  • Using slotted spoon, take out garlic and store in glass jar.
  • Keep oil, as you now have garlic oil as well!
  • Stored in fridge, it keeps almost indefinitely.
  • Garlic oil needs to be used more quickly, as it can become rancid

Notes

I make a huge batch of this and use it in recipes that call for garlic, but that I don't want to put that extra "bite" in. It's also great just spread on some crusty bread - comfort food at its best!
