Start with a couple primo bulbs of garlic, with nice full cloves. Slice the tops off without cutting into any of the cloves. Place them, whole, into a baking dish, bottoms down. Drizzle with obsenely good olive oil, then bake in a 350 oven for an hour. Prepare to be transported.
Another way to use roasted garlic is with a roast of winter vegetables. Chop up a selection of veggies - include onions and peppers and carrots and parsnips and squash. Toss into a baking dish. Add a handful of whole garlic cloves. Add some savory, and if you promise to go easy, a little rosemary. Drizzle with the same obsenely good olive oil. Bake for half an hour, stir everything around, and bake for another half hour, and wahooooo!
