Garlic confit relies on a French technique that slowly poaches garlic in oil. The result is a delicate, tender almost sweet flavor. It’s simple to prepare and completely delicious!
4 cups fresh peeled garlic
1 quart vegetable oil
* The same effect can also be accomplished in an oven. Simply add garlic and oil to a small hotel pan, ensuring the garlic is fully covered by the oil. Place in a 350°F oven until garlic is light brown and very soft, approximately 1 hour. Monitor garlic throughout the cooking process to ensure it doesn’t burn, cover with foil if necessary.
