Best Roasted Garlic Recipe
Using roasted garlic may be one of the best ways to flavor your food. By roasting your garlic instead of frying it, you can be sure that it will not burn. Garlic burns very easily, especially when it is cooked too fast over high heat.
Garlic loses its sharp bite and becomes softer and sweeter after being roasted. Roasting it in the oven produces a sweetness that resembles a rich, caramel-like flavor.
How to Make Roasted Garlic
Learning how to make roasted garlic is simple. All you need is an oven, aluminum foil, olive oil and a head of garlic. Follow the recipe below.
Once the garlic has been roasted, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool. When it is cool enough to hold, just apply a small amount of pressure to each clove, and they will pop right off the head. The best part is that there is no peeling required. The husk will slide right off.
Roasted Garlic will cut as easy as softened butter, and because of that, any chopping and/or mincing will require very little effort on your part. Just keep cutting back and forth with a sharp knife until the desired size is achieved.
Roasted garlic is so good that you will be tempted to try a piece whole. Go ahead and take a bite. It will lose some of its nutrients during the roasting process, but it is super delicious and still very healthy for you.
How Long Does Roasted Garlic Last?
The garlic will last 3–4 days if kept in the refrigerator. Place any used pieces of roasted garlic in an airtight container and take out as needed.
