Roasted Garlic


Today I am making some roasted Garlic. So i took 2 garlic bulbs and cut the top 1/2 inch off..then place them in an oven safe pan...then drizzle with Olive oil. Make sure if you do this to use extra virgin COLD PRESSED olive oil. Cold Pressed is very important, it is the method of processing and it keeps the best nutrients in the oil. So when i have my garlic all ready I bake it in the over on 350 for about an hour. The garlic comes out so yummy and soft this way. The garlic after it is roasted will have a very nice mild flavor...very delectable.

I have one of those cute terra cotta garlic roasters.
Maybe I will go ahead and give it a try. Thanks for the
tip about cold pressed; I never know which olive oil to buy.

Did you actually say;
-pickle
-garlic
-kids
and
-like
all in the same sentence?

My kids wouldn't even eat the pickles that come on a McDonald's burger,
what's your secret? Are you super-Mom?

glad you all enjoyed this post I had a lot of fun with cooking today.

Garlic has a lot of health benifits and is thought of as a natural antibiotic. it also cleans the blood, helps heal digestive problems..and much more.

Garlic is good on just about anything! Thanks for the info on roasting RR. I always wondered how to do it.
Bzmom, how about telling us how you go about the pickling?
Carmelita, I have no cold, no fleas, and no vampires, so I say all of the above.

Roasted Garlic. So!!!!! good.
On bread. Put in mashed potatoes.
Have a recipe for Chicken w Thirty cloves of Garlic.
My sister also pickles Garlic and it is quite different when done.
I have been growing garlic for years and it is so easy to grow.
Thanks RR for this.

Carmelita, Cicindy Here is the recipe I use on all my pickling as in dill not for sweet.
6 Cups Vinegar ( I use cider )
12 Cups Water
1 Cup pickling salt

Boil for 5 minutes

I will add these when I want different flavor. Hot pepper ( red ) Dill I add it to my garlic. green beans whatever I want to pickle. In pints I hot bath 15 mins.
When doing a lot of garlic I sperate the cloves and let them sit in water that I have boiled while it is hot for 10 to 15 mins then the skin slides right off. This is a recipe I received from a great, great family member. I could never get my pickles to do without it becoming soft. Now I have no trouble. My MIL will pickle Jalapenos and she adds a little olive oil and honey to them. Using this same brine.
Anyway my kids all like them.

Hope you like them as much as we do.

Thank you, hey wait a minute...b z mom 5, are you a buzy mother of 5 children? Well, you sure can cook.

Somewhere, oh somewhere I had a recipe from my aunt (busy mother of 9) for putting up fresh vegetables in a sweet pickling liquid. I will hunt for it. No promises.

Richard Charles, do you grow a specific kind of garlic or do you do a variety of different types?
