  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Smash and peel cloves of garlic. Transfer to a medium pot, add olive oil, and heat over medium-low until bubbles form around garlic, 3 minutes. Let cook 10 minutes, reducing heat to low if garlic begins to brown. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes

To store, refrigerate garlic and oil in an airtight container, up to 1 week.
