What you’ll need:
Whole head of garlic
Small baking dish (a ramekin works well)
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375°F.
Step 2: Without breaking the head of garlic apart, remove as much of the outer papery coating as you can:
Step 3: Cut off the pointed top part of the head, exposing a bit of each clove:
Step 4: Coat the small baking dish with olive oil and place the garlic inside. Drizzle with olive oil (use 1 Tablespoon olive oil per one head of garlic) and sprinkle liberally with salt.
Step 5: Cover with aluminum foil and bake until garlic is soft and able to be pierced easily with a paring knife, at least 40 minutes.
Step 6: Let the garlic cool until it can be handled easily. The cloves will squeeze easily out of their skins.
Step 7: Discard the skins and use your freshly roasted garlic in your favorite recipe!
