Homemade Roasted Garlic Spread
Makes about 1 cup
8 heads garlic
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Use a chef’s knife to slice off the top third of the heads of garlic. Transfer the garlic heads to a baking sheet. Drizzle the oil over the garlic heads so it penetrates down into the cloves and sprinkle with a bit of salt.
3. Roast until the garlic is very soft, beginning to brown, and the cloves are starting to pop out of their skins, about 45 minutes.
4. When the garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the cloves out of their skins and into a single airtight container or multiple small containers so you can freeze it in usable portions.
