Think confit is something you can only get at restaurants? No way! Learn how to make this super easy, addictive Garlic Confit!
- 2 heads of garlic
- ½ to 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Pull cloves from the head and peel to remove papery skins.
- Place the peeled cloves in the bottom of a small saucepan and add the oil. Set over medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, reduce heat to low and continue to cook for about 45 minutes and up to 1 hour, until softened and golden.
- Transfer cloves to a clean container. Cover with the oil and allow to cool to room temperature. Tightly seal and refrigerate.
Storage Tip: Keep refrigerated in an air tight container, up to 2 weeks.
Cooking Tip: Use enough oil to completely cover the garlic cloves.
Ingredient Tip: Any neutral oil will work here.
