Roasted Garlic with Crusty French Bread
Using Haleiwa Heat Macadamia Oil
8 whole garlic bulbs
2/3 cup Oils of Aloha Haleiwa Heat Macadamia Oil
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 tsp. coarsely cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp. Hawaiian salt (coarse sea salt)
3/4 cup beef or chicken stock
Hot crusty French bread, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove outer papery skin from garlic bulbs, but do not separate or peel individual cloves.
Cut a thin slice off the top of each bulb. Place garlic in a small baking dish. Drizzle with macadamia oil. Top with thyme, black pepper and Hawaiian salt. Add stock.
Cover and bake, basting occasionally with stock, for 1 hour. Uncover and bake until garlic is very tender, about 15 minutes more.
Serve the garlic in the baking dish and press the roasted garlic cloves from their skins onto bread slices and spread like butter. Use cooking liquid for dunking bread, if desired. Makes 12 servings.
