How To In the Kitchen: Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic is such a staple in my household, and I always need it on hand. I love to make big batches of it, and then freeze in small batches. Here’s how.

Remember, my batch is huge, so I will give you a nightly recipe, too.

Roasted Garlic (Bulk):

Ends and discarded cloves in the bowl (left,) and ready for the oven in the pan (right.)
  • 3 lbs garlic, deskinned and, ends cut off
  • 1/2 cup oil ( I used avocado)
  • large pinch of salt and pepper

Add garlic, oil, and salt and pepper to a glass baking pan, cover, and bake about an hour at 350°. It’s done when you can easily insert a fork into it, and it’s beginning to turn golden brown.

Roasted Garlic:

  • 5-10 cloves garlic, deskinned, and ends cut off
  • drizzle of oil ( I used avocado)
  • dash of salt and pepper

Add garlic, oil, salt and pepper to a small oven safe dish, and cover. Cook at 350° for about 45 or until you can easily insert a fork into it, and it’s beginning to turn golden brown.

Storage:

There’s a few ways you can do this. Choose whichever works best, depending on your usage.

-store in freezer containers, preferred size

-store in freezer bags, preferred size

-freeze into ice cube trays, individually, and then pop them out (of the trays) and into freezer bags, for a portioned amount whenever you need it

The prep, roasting, and storage for this is so worth it. I use inordinate amounts of garlic while cooking, and it still lasts me months! Leave any questions in the comments. Happy Cooking!
