Roasted Garlic Paste

Did you know that you can buy large bags of peeled, ready to use garlic from Sam’s and store the garlic in the freezer?  Then just remove whatever your recipe calls for and use it like you would fresh garlic, except without the hassle of peeling it!  This recipe is a wonderful way to use those bags of garlic.  I roast a pound or so at a time, then mash them and store them in a jar in the refrigerator.  Then, when I get ready to make something with garlic, I just take a spoonful out and add it to whatever I am making.  It is so easy and very convenient!!!
