Go back to the top you cut off and rescue any pieces of garlic worth saving for other uses.

So easy, and such great flavor. They went well on bread plain and with artichokes or olives, but I think I would love them with just about anything savory.

I love roasted garlic and it is so easy to do. I popped it all after roasting then froze the cloves separately - when frozen I put them in a zip lock bag - into the freezer they go for future use.

These basic recipes are priceless, when your not sure just how to do something, and I am happy you posted this here so I could make some! They came out of the skins so easily when I pressed the bulb with my fingers. Now I have some made up to use on different things. Doing the garlic this way really enhances the flavor of the garlic!
