A super easy way to roast garlic. Just wrap it in aluminium foil with a dab of butter then roast for about 30 minutes in a moderate oven. Enjoy on crackers or bread.
You can substitute olive oil for the butter if you prefer!
Something else. Absolutely love this stuff but couldn't give the recipe a 5 star because I didn't follow it. I use a terra cotta flowerpot and base to make this in. Soak the pot in COLD water for 20 minutes and place the garlic (and pot) in the oven then turn on the oven....let the garlic bake while the oven is preheating. Then I let it bake for 30 minutes. This is the way I was taught to do this...and it works every time. Delicious with crackers or a dense bread. Thanks for the post. - 08 Oct 2008
This was really yummy and quick. In lieu of the butter, I used olive oil with a dash of salt. - 08 Oct 2008
you cant go wrong with baked garlic. i took the advice of others and used olive oil and salt. excellent. it is true, however, it takes about 40-45 minutes to get soft. - 08 Oct 2008
