Three ingredients AND three steps. Soooo good you will make it all the time and use the oil in all your recipes.
8 large heads garlic, cloves separated and peeled
2 cup olive oil - half infused
4 sprigs rosemary
2 buds cannabis
Preheat oven 250
In a small baking dish, combine the garlic cloves, oil, and herbs.
Bake until garlic is tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The garlic is done when the cloves are golden, soft, and jammy.
Store the confit in a clean jar. Refrigerate; use within 2 weeks. Freeze after.
Not sure how to use your garlic confit and infused garlic oil? We've got your covered!
Uses for garlic confit and garlic oil are pretty straightforward– anything you want garlic flavor in can use it.
Serve with crusty bread. You can spread the garlic confit directly onto a sliced baguette (heaven), or use the bread to sop up garlic oil (also heaven). If you spread the garlic out on crostini, it also is fantastic topped with bruschetta and balsamic reduction!
Mix into dressings, condiments, or marinades. Mash the garlic cloves into mayo for a sandwich spread; marinate feta and olives in the garlic oil for a party; or use both the cloves and oil along with some white wine vinegar and dijon mustard for a deliciously garlicky salad dressing.
Blend into your favorite dip. Dips like hummus and baba ghanoush are great as-is, but with garlic confit blended it? Oh man. It’s a game-changer.
Smash into ricotta and add to a main dish. Layered in lasagna or spooned into stuffed shells, garlicky ricotta can take your pasta dishes to the next level.
Serve on a burger. Whole cloves of garlic on a freshly grilled burger is not a thing to be underrated.
Add to your veggies. Mix into a tray of roasted vegetables or mash into potatoes for a boost of flavor.
