How to make it

  • Preheat oven 350
  • Remove the papery outer layer of skin from the garlic head, but leave the individual cloves attached.
  • Slice off the top third of the head.
  • Place the garlic head flat side down in a small glass or ceramic ovenproof casserole.
  • Slowly drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over the garlic.
  • Cover tightly with foil or if your casserole has a lid, use it.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes. If a toothpick can pierce a clove easily, then it is ready.
  • Serve warm.
  • Break apart the cloves and squeeze out the soft garlic!

    It (garlic) is a great anti-biotic too!! I put it in just about everything savory I cook. I save most of it to throw on at the end. and it's Fresh, sparkly, a bit hot!

    I grew up outside of Gilroy, well Salinas is kind of outside of Gilroy. I had an Aunt and her second husband lived in Gilroy so garlic is a big part of my cooking. Always happy to see an interesting garlic recipe.
