Roasted garlic makes this butter extra special.

Roasting the garlic will make you house smell very strongly of garlic, so I usually roast a bunch of garlic when the weather is nice enough to have the windows open. You can freeze this butter and defrost when you want it.

2 Heads Garlic
1/2 lbs Butter
1 tbsp minced Italian Parsley

Step 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2
Cut the tops off the garlic and place garlic on 2 layers of square foil. Drizzle about 1 tsp Olive oil on top of garlic. Gather the end of the foil together so it looks like a Hershey Kiss, seal well. Place foil packet in a cookie sheet in case any oil leaks out. Roast in oven for 45 minutes. While the garlic is roasting whip butter with an electric mixer.

Step 3
Take out and let cool. Take garlic out of the skins and chop finely. Add chopped garlic and parsley. Chill butter before serving.

I serve it with crusty bread.

Keeps well in the refrigerator for about a month. Can be frozen for about six months.
