Another great thing about this dish is that it doesn’t leave you with garlic breath. So if you’re a big fan of garlic, the recipe will change your life!

Garlic Confit Recipe

  1. Fill a saucepan with peeled garlic cloves and cover them with vegetable oil.
  2. Place the saucepan into an oven. Cook the garlic confit at 200 °F (93 °C) for 3 hours.
  3. Cool the confit as quickly as possible and store it in the fridge in a clean air-tight jar.

How To Use It

You can use these roasted garlic cloves in so many ways! Add them to mashed potatoes, pasta, or garlic bread. Whisk the confit into vinaigrettes, spread it on crostini, or stir into dips. When you run out of garlic cloves, be sure to save the infused oil. You can use it to drizzle or saute any foods.

Store It Properly

Be sure to store the confit properly as garlic is a very low-acid vegetable. When stored in oil without oxygen and in warm temperatures, it can produce a serious toxin that causes botulism.

In the fridge, this garlic confit will last for several months, but if you want to be completely safe, we recommend using it up in three weeks.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
