Essential for every home! Golden tender sweet cloves of garlic can be used in many recipe or spread on bread. Stored in the refrigerator is my quick to get garlic oil and roasted garlic for daily uses. When using only the oil replace with enough to keep the cloves covered. I use rosemary on my garlic I leave the herb option to your taste. Try thyme, oregano, or a mix. I purchase the containers of already peeled garlic for ease. Adjust amounts of garlic to your usage.

This smelled so good roasting! Just seasoned with salt and pepper and they were perfect. I sauteed some potatoes in the oil which gave them a nice flavor, and used some of the garlic on toasted french bread. Made for Hustle and Bustle in Dec 2011.

Made this today for New Kids on the Block tag game. This was so easy and simple...I am excited to let you know how the garlic and oil went. It smells delicious and looks wonderful. I did add some fresh rosemary for the herbs. Thank you Rita.
