Garlic has a lot of amazing health benefits. I got my garlic roaster off of Amazon, thanks to bsikles smart tip about Maple syrup. Anyway according to whfoods.com: “Garlic may improve your iron metabolism, and is a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Manganese. Garlic has the ability to help prevent our blood vessels from becoming blocked. It also has an inflammatory benefits, is an antibacterial and antiviral and lastly has anti-cancer properties.”
I consulted Garlic Geek on proper garlic roasting techniques. Also, an important tip is to not wash the bakeware with soap but with warm water. Moreover, there’s a need to soak the cover in water for 15 minutes to produce a moist heat during the roasting process which will neither burn nor dry up the cloves. Another tip is to not overcrowd the garlic inside the roaster.
1. Cut tops of garlic and peel off 2-3 layers of the outside papery skin.
2. Soak the top in water for 15 minutes.
2. Drain clay baker and place garlic into baker.
3. Drizzle garlic with a little olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Place lid on clay baker and roast for about 30-45 minutes at 400 degrees. Once done, use precaution in taking the clay baker out with pot holders. Be careful not to burn your hands as it is extremely hot! You may remove the skin and spread the roasted garlic on a baguette or crackers.
Another appetizer to make and thanks to Garlic Geek and whfoods from Peaches, Masarap!!!
