“This has become a family staple. I make it at least once or twice a month. Very simple, very tasty. It uses an entire bulb of garlic separated but not peeled. The kids used to fight for the cooked garlic afterwards. Just squeeze the cloves to release the garlic in your mouth. The cooking process softens the clove and the strong pungent taste. What's left is a mild garlicky, sweet, mushy flavor. Serve with a nice salad and a green veggie.”
