Garlic Confit with Reserved Garlic Oil

Recipe Details:

2 fresh heads of garlic
olive oil to just cover (about 1 cup)

Separate the garlic cloves but leave them in their paper. Place them in a small saucepan and cover with olive oil (so that the cloves are completely immersed). Cook uncovered at the lowest heat for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Transfer cloves to a bowl. Preserve the garlic oil for other uses.

Eat by slipping each garlic clove out of its paper.

Note: This is an awesome little side. The garlic really mellows and is very tasty. I use the garlic oil for making crostini, drizzling on asparagus and in vinaigrettes.
