posted by memq 11-04-98 6:44 AM

Remove loose outer skin from garlic. Cut off tops of bulbs so that each clove is open at the top. Drizzle one quarter teaspoon olive oil over each bulb and dot with butter. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, thyme or other fresh herbs to taste.

Oven Bake: Cover and place in oven. Bake at 300 deg, for 30 minutes, remove cover and bake for an additional 45 min. or until tender and husks are golden brown.

Microwave: Cover and cook at full power for 1 - 2 minutes. For a softer consistency, cook as few seconds longer. Allow to cool.

To Serve:
Press softened garlic from cloves and spread on bread, crackers or use as part of your favourite recipe
