Roasting Garlic How-To

Roasted-Garlic

The best and easiest way to roast garlic is to place the entire knob on a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet on 240 F, for about 20 minutes.

Much like edible dosing, you want to go low and slow.

Once it’s golden brown around the edges, remove from oven and carefully remove the skin. It should come off easily!

Garlic will now be sweeter, and have a gorgeous fragrance to it which is to die for!

Chop it up unto small pieces, because the recipe relies on it!
