Garlic confit

Ingredients:
  • 1 head garlic, peeled and separated into cloves
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
Place garlic in a small saucepan over low heat, and cook slowly until soft and golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes.

What about garlic Basil confit?
post #6 of 7
One place I used to work at made it with 5-pound jars of peeled garlic cloves, usually a total of 15 or 20 pounds at a time. Put the garlic in a 2-inch-deep hotel pan, pour in olive oil (1/2 cup for every 5 pounds of garlic), mix thoroughly to cover all the cloves, cover tightly with foil, and bake about 45 minutes in a 325-degree convection oven. Rotate the pan(s) once during baking. When the cloves are golden, it's done. We would then puree it, but you needn't if you want to use the cloves whole.

You could probably add sprigs of whatever herb you wanted -- although I thing fresh thyme would be best. If you want basil, try using a spinkle of dried; fresh might be too delicate.

I place my garlic inside of a stoneware crock with some olive oil and bake at around 325 for about 20 minutes. When cooled slightly, I mash the mixture and spread on bread.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.
