Roasted garlic is really tasty! I like serving this with steak or italian dinners. Use roasted garlic as a side dish with warm bread or toast, or mix it in with mashed potatoes. It is really really delish!
Preheat the oven to 300°F.
3 heads garlic
2 cups olive oil
3 sprigs thyme
1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
Cut the tops off of the heads of garlic.
Place the garlic in a baking pan with the cut side down.
Add the thyme and pepper.
Pour the oil over the garlic, thyme and pepper.
Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 300F oven until the garlic is golden brown and soft, about an hour.
Drain the garlic oil and set aside to cool.
Reserve all of the remaining roasted garlic for other uses.
Eat this as a spread, over warm crusty bread, or use for cooking.
