    IngridH's Note:

    Roasted whole cloves of garlic, processed in the food processor to make a paste. Keep this on hand to make garlic bread, flavor mashed potatoes, or use in anything that could use a bit of a flavor kick. Roasting the garlic mellows the sharp, bitter flavors, leaving it sweet and tasty.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Make a packet out of a piece of foil by folding it in half, then making small folds along two of the open edges.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic, salt and oil to the packet. Fold the open side a few times to seal.
    4. 4
      Bake until the garlic is very soft and golden brown. In my oven, this takes about an hour.
    5. 5
      Once the garlic is done, remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
    6. 6
      Place garlic in the food processor, and process until it is a smooth paste.
    7. 7
      Place in a seal-able container and store in the refrigerator.

      A neccesity in every kitchen, IMHO! Today I had 8 HEADS of garlic to roast, so I cut the heads in half, drizzled with oil, sprinkled with kosher salt, and followed the recipe and time, and squeezed out those golden lovlies! I have also done just a few cloves the same way when I'm all out and need some for a recipe. I use roasted garlic a lot, so I freeze it flat in a zipper bag, and just break off however much I need right from the freezer. Fabulous! ZWT 7 - Shady Ladies

      I love how easy this is to make and how delicious it was! YUMMY! I used it to make garlic bread and froze the rest for future use!

      YUM, this is great stuff! I should always have an extra 5 bulbs or so of garlic lying around and just pop them in the oven whenever it's going for an hour or so. I used the whole roasted bulb method, found it a bit messy to squeeze the garlic out of the bulbs afterwards (very minor complaint) and I may try peeling the cloves before roasting, like you indicate in your recipe. I mashed the cloves with a fork without problem. The whole family enjoyed this on bread as a side for a soup and I know I can put this to so many uses.
