Used in sauces, stews, on french bread, dips, marinades, etc. this is so good, you'll want to make extra just to eat off the spoon. From Rachael Ray's Week in a Day. I have put up a recipe using it in Vegetarian Chorizo, Roasted Butternut and Zucchini Chili Pot and Swiss Chard au Gratin French Bread Pizzas.
- 6 heads garlic, tops trimmed off to expose all of the cloves
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 tablespoons honey
- kosher salt
- fresh ground pepper
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the garlic in a cluster on a large piece of foil and drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil. Wrap up the garlic in the foil to make a tightly sealed pouch. Roast until very tender, about 45 minutes. Let cool, then squeeze the garlic from the skins into a food processor. Add the remaining 3/4 cup olive oil and the honey and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth, then transfer to a small container. (Alternatively, you can mash the garlic paste with a fork instead of using a food processor.).
