  • Preheat your oven to 200c (180c fan assisted)
  • Cut the tops from the garlic bulbs so that you are exposing the tops of the cloves.
  • Remove any excess paper skin from around the bulbs.
  • Place the bulbs onto individual sheets of the foil.
  • Drizzle each bulb with a glug of oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  • Wrap the garlic into a foil parcel.
  • Place the garlic parcels into the oven and cook for 45 minutes.

When you remove the garlic from the oven, the cloves will be soft and caramelised. Allow them to cool a little before handling.

You can store your roasted garlic in the fridge for up to 3 days or try pureeing it and storing in ice cube trays in the freezer.
