- 1 large plump head of garlic
- 1/4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Pre heat oven to 325 degrees f. Cut the top 1/2 inch from the garlic head to reveal the cloves. Discard the top. Drizzle the cut surface with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the garlic head, cut side up in a small baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until the garlic is deep beige and very tender when squeezed. About 1 1/2 hours. Let cool until easy to handle.
