When garlic is in full season it’s a good idea to roast it, and save for the winter months.
This can be done in whole cloves or cut through the middle to expose the cloves.
Simply place the garlic in a baking dish and cover with Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Place it in the hot oven (180C) for about 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool before placing all ingredients in a jar.
Add a bay leaf and enjoy the soft garlic in cooking.
The oil can be used to drizzle on salads, brush on to bread for quick easy garlic bread.
This can be kept in the fridge but the oil will solidify – still perfectly ok to use!!
