For a long time I have heard of the flavor of roasted garlic. Finally I tried it and could not believe how easy it was and the benefits of a deep, rich flavor it brought to many things! Also, it is easy to do!
Please take a look at the above link for pictures and step by step instructions.
Take a bulb of garlic and slice the top off. Just a thin cut to get the very top off. Leave the skin on.
Place in a small, round baking dish tightly placed together.
Pour olive oil on top generously. Add salt and pepper.
Bake at 350 until golden brown.
Let cool and then squeeze the garlic out of the skin, it comes easily. Leave in the oil and mash the garlic up in the oil.
Cover and store the oil and garlic for use in vegetables, pasta, over bread, there are many uses!
