Lord, have mercy! Have you ever made roasted garlic? It’s one of those things that you think must be complicated because it’s so good, but guess what? You can make roasted garlic right in your own kitchen and it’s super easy. Just grab several whole heads of garlic and peel off the papery outer layer of skin then slice off about 1/4 inch from the top.
And all you do is squeeze the bottom of the head and the cloves will pop right out. Then take a fork and mash the garlic. Now you’re ready to eat! You can use it on so many things—bread, pizza crust, chicken, mashed potatoes—you can even put a spoonful in a pot of soup and really turn it up a notch. And the roasted garlic will keep in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for several months. It’s a great healthy way to add major flavor to most foods. Enjoy!
