  • 4 large heads garlic separate the cloves and peel
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 sprigs thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 250°F.
  • In a small baking dish, combine the peeled garlic cloves, oil, and fresh herbs.
  • Bake until the garlic is tender, stirring from time to time. This will take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The garlic should be soft and golden.
  • Remove from the stove and let it fully cool on a wire rack.
  • Store the confit in a clean jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • Use the garlic as a spread and the garlic oil as a dip.
