Thumbs up Roasted Garlic & Oil

I just figured out the best way to roast garlic. I was getting really frustrated because every time I tried to do it I would either burn or under cook the cloves. This way is fool proof and you end up with wonderful garlic oil in the process.

Put peeled garlic cloves (in a single layer) in a small oven-proof baking dish and add olive oil just to cover. Bake at 325° until the cloves turn a light golden brown. To make sure they're done, test by sticking a fork in the largest clove. It should be very soft. All ovens are different, so start checking after 25 minutes.

Peeling the garlic seems like a lot of work to me...as well as being smelly. The original directions I copied said to bake, covered at 400 for 23 - 35 minutes - but my oven is weird above 375. So I also do mine at 325 & let them sit there for more like an hour. I've never had them burn. The one thing I object to is all the oil this uses!! It just seems like sooooo much!! I have already wrapped each garlic bulb (minus the dry outer layers) in foil & just sprayed with the Misto. This worked really well too.

Do you store yours in the freezer? Or just make what you'll use that day? I keep a container in the freezer once I've popped the cloves out of the now soggy shell. LOL It's great to have them on hand for mashed potatoes or leftover angel as a side...garlic & oil.

Yes, I guess it would be a lot of work to peel all the cloves. That's why I cheat. When I know I'm going to need roasted garlic and/or garlic oil for a recipe I buy a container of the already peeled cloves.

I use a very small baking dish, so I don't use that much oil, only about a 1/3 cup. I always use up the oil very quickly anyway. It's great to add herbs to and use as a dipping oil for bread.

I haven't tried freezing it yet. I have always used up what I've roasted within a week.

I've never had a problem roasting the garlic. Just cut off a bit of the top, drizzle with some EVOO and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Roast at 375 or 400 until softened (tooth pick goes easily into the cloves). Then just squeeze out.

The oil will be infused with the garlic.

Nooooooooooooooo! LOL Don't throw the oil away, it's so good. I use it for so many things. I've sauteed shrimp and chicken in it, used it in hummus and of course for dipping fresh baked bread. You can use it in any recipe that calls for olive oil and garlic.
