6-9 heads garlic
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste (optional)
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Cut top off each head of garlic, so that a bit of each clove is exposed.
Arrange cut side
up in a heavy-bottomed casserole. Cover tightly with foil.
Bake 45-75 minutes, until side of heads can be dented with a fingertip.
Serve each guest a whole head with warm or toasted bread, dipping oil or softened butter,
salt, pepper and fresh herbs as desired.
Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
