This is a great method for roasting garlic, so it can be ready when you start cooking in the evening. I've even done it overnight and started cooking in the morning. Roasted garlic goes great with mashed potatoes, on pasta, or simply spread on crusty bread.

Thank you Mirjam for this ingenious recipe! I needed some roasted garlic for a recipe I was doing, and I didn't want to heat up the oven in this heat! I then remembered I had stored this in my cookbook. Put this going last night before bed and I woke up to the most wonderful smell drifting from my kitchen! The garlic got to the right "mushy" consistensy and really mellowed in flavor!
