How to Make Perfect Roasted Garlic

 Roasted Garlic is one of the most wonderful tasting things in the world. Raw garlic although wonderful added to many dishes  tastes sharp and bitter. Roasted garlic has a sweet nutty flavor that melts on your tongue when you eat it.

Every time I make roasted garlic I can’t help but pluck one of those soft little nuggets of heaven out of the crispy garlic bulb and sigh in delight as it melts on my tongue. Believe me the experience is something that will make you forget about garlic breath. You just won’t care. I swear.

 Don’t get me wrong. I love raw garlic. I use it in many recipes. It plays a major role in any soup recipe I make. And shows up in one form or another is most of my meat dishes. If a recipe calls for 2 cloves of chopped raw garlic I am likely to double or even triple the amount because I love it so much . You can not have enough garlic in any recipe as far as I am concerned.

There is something about roasted garlic that makes your taste-buds sing. Roasting garlic in olive oil adds a rich depth of flavor you can’t get any other way.  Making roasted garlic is so easy there really isn’t a good  enough reason why anyone shouldn’t make it.

    I love to make roasted garlic this way! My favorite part (aside from eating it) is squeezing the bottom while the yummy cloves wiggle out. Delish.

    I love garlic also. We recently got a smoker and I tried making roasted garlic in there along with the meat. It takes it to the next level. I mixed it with some grass fed butter and let it set. Ill never not put garlic in the smoker as long as I’m cooking.
