Like sooo many others, I love garlic and whatever an amount a recipe calls for, I usually up it threefold. When I roast garlic, I make lots at a time as it gets messy squeezing the garlic out at the end, because I want it very soft. My garlic comes in packs of five tied up in mesh. I usually roast six packs (30 heads) at a time I also store it a bit differently then what I've seen in other recipes. PLEASE do not be put off by the length of instructions as I made it as smiple as possible for new cooks!
