How to Roast Garlic

Roasted garlic has a sweet, less pungent taste than regular garlic. It can be served next to your favorite meat dish or spread on warm, fresh bread.

Ingredients:
Garlic
Olive oil
Aluminum foil

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Peel off outer layer making sure to keep cloves intact (it will be hard to peel the bottom part but you can leave that on). Slice off the top revealing the cloves. See picture.
