Food & Wine - December, 1993 Submitted By SAM WARING

  • 4 garlic heads, whole (about 14 oz (392 grm).)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil, extra-virgin
  • 1 medium onion; unpeeled & halved-lengthwise
  • salt (opt.)
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (175 C.).
  • Using a large sharp knife, cut off 1/2-inch from the top of each head of garlic to expose some of the flesh.
  • Drizzle 1 tbsp (15 ml) of the oil over the bottom of a gratin or glass pie dish.
  • Place the garlic and the onion halves cut sides down in the dish, cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 minutes, until very soft to the touch.
  • Uncover and let cool for 20 minutes.
  • Peel the onion halves and finely chop them.
  • Place in a medium bowl.
  • Squeeze the garlic pulp from the skins into the bowl; discard the skins.
  • Using a fork, stir in the remaining 2 tsp (10 ml) oil and mash with the onion and garlic until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Season with salt if desired. (The garlic jam will keep refrigerated in a glass jar for up to 2 weeks.)
  • Makes 1-1/3 cups (325 ml).
Use this condiment with roasted meats or as a spread for toasted croutons or cold meat sandwiches, or try a spoonful of it mixed into homemade salad dressings and sauces.
