A KosherEye signature recipe
We enjoyed this at a friend's table and it has become a staple in our homes.
8 ounces good quality extra virgin olive oil
10 cloves of garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
Put garlic and oil into a saucepan
Heat on very, very low flame until gently simmering. Simmer about 5 minutes, until garlic softens. Be certain that garlic does not burn.
Turn off flame and let rest for at least an hour or two, until cooled.
Pour into serving bowl and refrigerate at until 2 hours before using
Serve at room temperature
Serve with challah, foccacia, or any fresh crispy bread
Leftover oil may be used as part of a pasta sauce
Whole peeled garlic from a jar works just fine in this recipe.
Garlic can be minced if preferred, and then cooked.
