Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic tastes really great. Garlicky, but without the sharpness of raw garlic. As an added bonus, the flavor doesn't linger in the back of your mouth for hours after you eat it!
Just rub a head of garlic with a little oil or butter, wrap it in foil and bake at 375F for 45 minutes. The cloves will be very soft and you can just squeeze them out of their skin. You can use it in the same ways you might use regular garlic, but it makes a really, really terrific spread. Crusty bread + roasted garlic = garlicky goodness!
