Roasted Garlic in Olive Oil

Roasted Garlic in Olive Oil Few foods metamorphose as dramatically or alluringly as garlic when it is roasted. Hardly a savory recipe exists in which one could not imagine this substance. I always have these garlic preparations on hand. When you roast garlic it becomes caramelized, sweeter, more mild, and dare I say – more mouthwatering than garlic already is. Roasted garlic is a great add in to any dish. I personally love adding this to salads or pastas. Here is how to roast garlic cloves in the oven.

You can use fresh or dried herbs. I used fresh herbs in this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. You'll want to line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, silicon mat, or foil...this will help the garlic from sticking. Spread the garlic in a single layer on top of the baking sheet and drizzle with just enough oil so that each clove is coated. Lightly season the garlic with kosher salt. Bake the garlic for 45-60 minutes, gently shaking the pan half way through. The garlic cloves are finished roasting when they are fork tender and golden brown. Add the garlic to an airtight container or jar. Fill the container with olive oil and store in the refrigerator.
