Singer Farm Naturals will be having a garlic talk this Sunday, September 9 at 1pm at their Legacy Barn at 6730 Lake Road in Appleton. They have several varieties of garlic now available. Garlic guru Tom Szulist provided us this easy, tasty recipe:
Roasted Garlic with a Twist
Offer the roasted cloves in one small dish and a high-quality extra virgin olive oil in another. Diners can dip the bread in olive oil, then smear a clove of garlic on it. Heavenly!
- 3-4 head garlic
- 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Remove some of the outer papery covering of the garlic. Keep a few of the bulbs separate and do not bake. Slice off the top of the head so most of the cloves are exposed. Place on a square of aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Drizzle the oil over the cloves. Fold the foil over the head to completely enclose it.
Roast for about 45 minutes, until the garlic is completely soft and lightly browned.
To serve, separate the head into individual cloves. Allow your guests to squeeze out the softened garlic as needed, or squeeze out the cloves into a small serving dish.
Take the extra bulb and peel and mince the garlic. Combine the minced garlic with the paste or allow your guests to add it to their baked garlic.
