Roasted Garlic

I seem to forget about the ease and delight of
roasting a garlic.
It's the perfect appetizer as well as,
the perfect little of pouch of goodness that could be added to anything.
Everything is elevated by this powerful pocket of flavor.
If you haven't done it before I encourage you that's it's the 
EASIEST thing ever!
Here's the low down.

Cut off the little twisted tail side through some of the garlic.

Set it on some parchment paper. Or aluminum foil. Or in a stone garlic roaster.

Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
and dress with Salt & Pepper.

Wrap it all up.

Stick it in the 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Then unwrap a little gift of the gods.

Serve it on a plate with anything that is a vehicle for smearing garlic all over.
When it's roasted, it comes out sweet, carmely, creamy, and fragrant.
In fact, 
don't roast just one at a time.
You'll probably just eat a whole one before the plate makes it to the company.

I love this picture because it captures how
perfectly soft the cloves were.
See that little piece that looks like a little tooth?
Just fell out of the papery shell.
I love it.
