I roast garlic often enough. and I make a killer homemade garlic salt with a head of roasted garlic (don't worry, I'll show you how soon and then you'll be hooked, too). Here's the garlic, all ready to go in the oven:
45 minutes later:
Drain & cool.... then into a bottle.
and all this yummy roasted garlic
1 cup mayonnaise
3-4 cloves roasted garlic, mashed with a fork
a little salt & pepper
a little lemon juice
Mix it all together & let sit in the fridge for while (an hour, anyway) to let the flavors meld. Use on burgers, fries, sandwiches, crackers, chips, eat it off the spoon......
