How to Make Roasted Garlic

Kitchen Crew


When roasted, garlic has a much different taste than when it's raw. It releases its natural sugars becoming caramelized with a mild, sweet flavor. Using roasted garlic enhances the flavor of what it's added to, giving the dish a naturally sweet, buttery, richness that is like nothing else.
