To roast garlic, first remove the papery outer skin from the garlic heads, leaving the clusters of cloves intact. Cut a large slice off tip end of garlic, exposing some of the garlic in each clove. Place the garlic in the center of a sheet of aluminum foil. Dot each head with 1/2 teaspoon butter; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap foil around garlic and seal. Roast at 350 degrees F for 1 hour, until garlic heads are golden brown and tender.
To use, simply squeeze the garlic out of the browned husk. Store refrigerated. Sizzleworks’ video “Roasted Garlic” provides an excellent demonstration of this preparation.
