Recipe review Confit Garlic & Garlic Oil - Keep it Simple
« on: December 15, 2013, 09:28:27 am »
As the title of the book says, this is so simple, the most time consuming was peeling the garlic. I bought some local garlic at the growers market this morning with this recipe in mind. I used 310 g evoo as that was all I had left, the smaller cloves broke down as it cooked so doesn't look as good as the photo in the book. It has a lovely sweet taste, there was a small amount that didn't fit in the jars, instead of wasting it I'm going to make some Caesar salad dressing.

Thanks Jeninwa. I can't wait to start cooking from it.

I made this today and as Jen said, it's very easy.
Loved the smell through the house when I was making it, but I do love garlic. I also had some oil left over, which I've put into another jar and will use as garlic oil when cooking.

I haven't tasted if yet, but I'm sure it will be wonderful.

I'll give one if the jars to my SIL in her Xmas hamper.

I have seen peeled garlic sold by the kilo. Next time. I see it I will make it though I really don't mind peeling garlic. It could be peeled in the TMX but it breaks up some cloves .
Thanks girls.

I don't think some broken cloves would matter as Jeninwa points out they get a bit broken up during cooking anyway (the photo in KIS looks as if a few cloves are smushed a bit). It doesn't matter, you can't taste shapes 😉

Have ordered my book (one for DD, too) but they won't arrive until after Christmas. If someone has the time and they could pm me the recipe/instructions for this, I'd really appreciate it . .!

This is required for quite a few recipes so I made up a batch tonight. I used 6 heads and 310g oil.

Good one Jen . I had large Tassie cloves but as you say the few tiny ones broke down in the cooking and I could have strained them out but why bother

I used 4 large cloves and enough EVOO to cover in bowl, about 275gms.
