Garlic Confit (Oven)

Gorgeously delicious and smooth garlic confit is a old-world styled spread that goes great over a nice slice of warm toasted bread or as a dip to enjoy with your appetizers. The jar itself inspires authentic haunts of the old world that create natural nostalgia for your grandma’s kitchen. I love the way this looks and tastes and I proudly put on the table with any warm bread that may feel neglected and may need a nice gentle spread. To equate old world Italian with garlic is not absolutely correct but isn’t one-hundred percent wrong either. For me, the entire preparation of this is rustic and appealing. I love the method of peeling and have even started using it on pearl onions for other recipes.

Break up the garlic heads into cloves. Place them in a bowl. Add boiling water to the bowl and let soak for 45-60 seconds.

In a separate bowl add cold water.

Transfer heated cloves to the cold water. Let cool. Then peel the cloves and place them in a separate bowl. This should take less than 15 minutes. Watch video for reference.

In a oven safe pot: add peeled cloves, olive oil (or avocado, canola or grape seed) and fresh rosemary (or any herbs you prefer). Cover with aluminum foil.

Cook for 2 ½ – 3 hours or until garlic is tender and light golden but not brown. Check the garlics after 2 hours, then repeat every 30 minutes.

Remove the pot from the oven. Discard the aluminum foil.

Let garlic cool at room temperature. Transfer garlic confit to a jar (with lid) along with the oil.

Serve with toasted bread.
