Garlic confit consists of roasting garlic in generous amounts of fat, at low heat, until tender - it's a delicious accompaniment to steak, chicken and so much more!
Servings 4 people
- 8-10 cloves garlic
- 2 C olive oil or more, on preference
- 10-12 sprigs thyme
- salt optional
- black pepper optional
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cut and remove the top third of the garlic bulbs. Place the garlic in a loaf pan and add the olive oil to it. Make sure that you also pour enough olive oil on top of the garlic. Pour just enough so they are covered. Add the springs of thyme and spread them between the garlic.
Put the garlic in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let it cool off for 20 minutes. Squeeze out the garlic cloves out of each head.
Store up to 1 month in the refrigerator.
