  4. *Roasting Garlic- Cut off top third of the garlic head (not the root end) to expose the cloves; discard the top. Place the head of garlic, trimmed end up, on a 10 inch square of foil. Rub the head generously with olive oil and sprinkle it with salt. Gather the foil ends together and close tightly. Roast in 350 degrees oven 45 minutes or until cloves are golden and the head is soft. Let cool enough to handle,then squeeze gently so roasted cloves slip out of their skins. throw away skins.
