This is a recipe for roasted garlic butter. It is good on bread as a healthy snack or it could be used for cooking. This recipe made about 3 cups of roasted garlic butter with about 3 pounds of garlic. Usually the recipe is 1 pound of garlic = 1 cup of garlic butter. We bought a 3 pound bag of garlic at Sam's club for $7

This is a very simple recipe with only 3 ingredients: garlic, olive oil, and salt. It is recommended to use at least 1 pound of garlic. Do not use very high quality olive oil; you only need the cheap stuff to roast the garlic. Preheat an oven to 425 F

Step 2: Cut The Ends Off The Garlic

Cut the rough tip of the garlic off and discard the tips. Put the garlic in a large bowl.

Put about one tablespoon of olive oil per pound of garlic in the bowl and shake the garlic until the olive oil is mixed. Put the garlic on a pan to where the garlic is evenly spread out.

Step 4: Roast The Garlic

Once the oven is heated to 425, put the pan in the oven. Let it cook until the tops of some of the garlic are just starting to blacken. Take the pan out and mix the garlic about every 10 - 20 minutes until they are cooked.

Let the garlic cool for about 5 minutes. Then, scrape the roasted garlic into a food processor/ blender. Chop until the butter is smooth. If it is too thick or too chunky, add a little more olive oil. Add salt if needed. Put this mixture into a jar and enjoy! (or you could even sell it)

How should you keep it? Fridge?

Once you cut the garlic you should wait about 10 minutes. This gives time for chemicals with various health benefits to form.
