  • Baked Garlic?

    I've had this in restaurants before, whole peeled cloves of cooked garlic. They looked just like they do when they're raw. How do I make garlic cloves like that at home?

    Wrap a head of garlic and 1/4 cup olive oil or butter in foil, making that the whole head is covered with oil. Bake at 400*F for half an hour, or until the individual bulbs feel squishy.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          I don't mind smelling like garlic. I LOVE IT in fact. Totally worth the extra space I get the next few days

            Only the top part. That flesh-colored thing on the bottom doesn't appreciate being roasted.

              Cut off the top half inch (approximately - just enough so that the tip of each clove is exposed), drizzle on a little fat (olive oil or whatever else), and wrap in foil. Bake until squishy. That's how I do it.

                    I hope I'm not oversharing, but once after eating about 6 baked heads on saturday, I made a guy at work walk out of the bathroom choking on Monday.

                        Giant, or elephant garlic was re-discovered in 1941 by an American nurseryman, Jim Nicholls, who found it growing wild in the gardens of an abandoned settlement called Scio in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.

                        Hard to get in UK.....and expensive; about US$ 7/head !!

                          The garlic farm on the Isle of Wight does it - but I don't have a link to their website. They also do smoked garlic which has the advantage of not sprouting!!!
