- 4 whole heads of fresh garlic
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- ¾ Tbl coarsely ground pepper
- ¾ Tbl dried thyme
- ½ Tbl salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim points off each garlic head to expose tops of cloves. Place close together in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle heads with oil and sprinkle with pepper, thyme and salt. Roast garlic for 30 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 250 degrees and cook one hour longer. Serve the garlic with slices of crusty French bread. Pop the cloves out of the skins and spread on bread.
