How to roast our smoked garlic....

We frequently get asked what to do with our smoked garlic in order to keep its smokey flavour. We cold smoke our garlic meaning the garlic is smoked using cooler temperatures. This means the garlic will keep longer, but most of the smokiness will actually be in the outer skin - so don't peel it!

Our method of roasting the garlic whole, in its skin, gives you a basis to make lots of other dishes, as well as a bit of preservation, so don’t worry you don’t have to eat it all in one go! So here's what to do....

Ingredients:

- 1 x Smoked Garlic Bulb
- Approx 2 tablespoons of oil (preferably our Smoked Olive Oil or Smoked Rapeseed Oil)

Preparation:

Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
Serves: 2-4 People depending on use

Method:

- Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas mark 6
-Take a large (oven proof) coffee cup, ramekin or garlic roaster and line it with a large piece of tin foil, with the edges hanging over the rim
-Place the garlic (whole with skin on) in the foil and drizzle with the oil (use as much as you can as this is used later on, so none goes to waste!)
-Fold up the foil to form a garlic parcel
-Then bake at 200°C for approximately 30 mins
-Take the whole thing out of the oven and either eat straight from the foil (be very careful as everything will be very hot), with some crusty bread and maybe some baked Camembert (yummy!!) or....
- Allow the roast garlic to cool throughly
- Tip the oil into a ramekin or small bowl and squeeze out the soft sweet smokey garlic into the oil. Keep the husk of the garlic, which can be boiled up with your favourite stock for a soup later on

Roasted smoked garlic serving suggestion:

- You can use your garlic paste in mash, sauces, gravy, curries, mayonnaise or just spread on crusty bread with some cheese
-Try mixing it up with some fresh herbs and butter for a smoked garlic butter to melt on top of a steak or piece of fish! Enjoy....
