Fresh Garlic Marries Beautifully with Olive Oil In the Oven…

Roasted Garlic in olive oil has many uses; not just for food, but that’s for another post.

Making it, is simple.  Eating it, even simpler.  Garlic breath is a possibility, but the health benefits are well worth it.  I use the infused oil and the roasted garlic, in many of the dishes I make, and you will see the recipes in my future posts, but for now, I’m going to tell you how I make it…

I use a ramekin, and fill it with one to two layers of fresh garlic bulbs.  I then fill the dish with olive oil; enough to cover it; sometimes more if I want more infused oil.  I cover it with foil and set it in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Let cool.  I will sometimes leave it in the ramekin and store it in the refrigerator until I need it, or I pour the garlic and oil in a jar, again storing it in the refrigerator. That’s all there is to that.  It’s simple and inexpensive to make, yet adds so much to a dish.  I love dipping freshly baked French bread in it!  ImageImage
