a versatile condiment -the garlic can be used on bruschetta,or with pasta, rice, potatoes, etc. and the oil can be used for marinades, dressings or cooking.

Oh Chia...what a wonderful way to get roasted garlic flavor without the roasting ... and have seasoned olive oil, too!! Next time I will double the heads of garlic and peppers, as garlic was so soft and spread very easily on bruschettas. So YUMMY I couldn't stop eating them. And pretty too...garlic had nice golden color. Note - watch and stir often so the garlic does not get too browned. I was disappointed that the oil didn't absorb more of the garlic and pepper flavor, but the garlic cloves were heavenly! I have a large container of peeled garlic cloves in the freezer, so I will be making this often, instead of roasting garlic, and smashing cloves into a garlic "butter" spread. Definitely a winner!
