Learn how to roast garlic and bring a depth of flavor to this versatile ingredient. Roasting garlic caramelizes the cloves and draws out their mellow, sweet and nutty flavor.
The sharp Double-D® edge of the Santoku-Style Trimmer easily cuts through the tough layers of a garlic bulb.
How to Roast Garlic
- Using a Santoku-Style Trimmer , cut off the entire top of the garlic bulb about 1/4 to 1/2 inch down to expose the garlic cloves.
- Place bulb cut-side up on some aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt.
- Tightly wrap the bulb in foil, place in a small baking dish and bake at 400 F for 45 minutes, until the cloves are soft.
- Remove from oven, let cool and then squeeze the bottom of the bulb to release the cloves.
Place cooled, roasted garlic cloves in a small jar and completely cover with olive oil. Tightly seal the lid and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
