  • Fave roasted garlic recipes?

    It's that time of year when I convert last season's garlic into storage garlic. This time I'm bulk roasting it all to freeze in smaller portions.

    Does anyone have full-on vampire-chasing roasted garlic recipes? I'd like to shake up my usual recipe rotation

    Ohh... my favorite way is the tried and true... turn it into spreadable garlic paste of deliciousness!

    350 oven...
    Foiled baking sheet...
    Cut the pointy end off the heads of garlic ... sprinkle with cracked black pepper, red pepper flake, maybe some thyme, and a liberal douse of extra virgin olive oil.
    Make sure the oil soaks into the heads well, and that all the cut surfaces are coated.
    Place cut side DOWN on baking sheet.

    Bake for about an hour, until the garlic is soft, slightly browned, and ready to squeeze out...
    You could coat a boot in this stuff and make it tasty!
    (I have also used bacon grease for the oil... for a little something different.)

    I also LOVE Skordalia!
    It's a greek potato spread... with a smack in the face of RAW garlic flavor.
    But it's soooooo good.

      This sounds amazing! I have about 25 heads of garlic left from last year that need to be processed. So once it's baked and you squeeze it out, can you keep it? Store in a mason jar? Refrigerate?

        Ahh... to store.

        Freeze in a smallish container that you'll use pretty soon after thawing.
        Put into container and add enough olive oil to cover the surface (prevents freezer burn). Freeze!
        I've used dollar store ice trays to freeze it in... then leave it in the trays until I use.
        (Note... the trays are NEVER good for anything ever after this, EVER. LOL)

        To serve.... allow to thaw... stir well.
        Maybe freshen it up a notch with a bit of fresh parsley and some lemon zest.
        NOMnomNOM!
