Roasting garlic brings out its mellow sweet side and reduces its pungency. Roast garlic perfectly using this tip.
Preheat oven to 350°. Halve garlic bulb horizontally, then lightly drizzle cut sides with olive oil. Tightly wrap garlic, cut sides up, in foil. Roast garlic until tender, 30-40 minutes. Let garlic cool, then squeeze the cloves from the skins.
