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!!!
Servings: cup paste
- Preheat oven to 375. Dump some garlic cloves onto a piece of foil.
- Coat with oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap up in foil and place in oven for about 45 minutes, until mostly done.
- Unwrap the foil so the top is open and continue to bake another 15 minutes or until the cloves begin to brown slightly.
- Remove from oven and mash with fork or potato masher. Cool and store in a sealed jar in refrigerator.
