How to Roast, Serve and Preserve Garlic

Garlic in Pan
Roasting garlic sweetens and mellows its flavour, creating an ingredient that can be used in many tasty ways.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300˚F. Trim 1/2” or so off the top of each medium to large garlic bulb you want to roast. Set garlic, cut-side-up, in a cast iron pan or baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and flavour with chopped rosemary and salt, if desired. Cover and roast 50 to 60 minutes, or until garlic is very tender.

Step 2

Make a simple appetizer by serving the roasted garlic with a creamy cheese, such as Brie, goat or blue, and toasted baguette. Or squeeze the roasted garlic out of theirs skins and use to flavour other foods, such as pizza, pasta, stews, soups, sauces and mashed potatoes.

Step 3

If you wish to store garlic for later use, set roasted, skinned and cooled cloves in a sterilized jar. Now completely cover with olive oil. Seal the jar and refrigerate until needed. Will keep up to a week. If you wish to keep roasted garlic long than that, freeze the cloves without oil. To do so, set them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze solid. Now transfer to a freezer bag and keep frozen up to 2 months.
