How To: Roast Garlic

If you have never had roasted garlic before, I hope you take the time to make some and try it. When roasting garlic the smell takes over the whole house. To me, it smells so much better then air freshener! When roasted, garlic takes on a very complex, almost sweet flavor. It's great in soups, mixed into your favorite hummus recipe, or smeared on French bread to make the best garlic bread you've ever had. It is pretty easy to make and you don't need any special garlic roaster to do it either, just a double thickness of aluminum foil.

What you need:
1 large head of garlic
Good Olive Oil
Double thickness of aluminum foil or a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil

How to:
Slice the top off the head of garlic so the that cloves are exposed. Place on a sheet of foil and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap the foil up around it, but not tightly. Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for about an hour or until the garlic has browned and becomes nice and soft. Let cool then either squeeze the garlic out into a dish or take a knife and scoop it out.
