Baked Garlic Madness

You may think that garlic gives you nothing but bad breath? You're partly right; but garlic also has a lot of health benefits, it's considered as a blood cleanser, it lowers blood pressure, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, and a lot more.

Although garlic is best taken when it's raw, when you get all of its nutrients; but we do not want to ward off all your friends either.  Now you'll probably ask, what's the cure for garlic breath?  Some people would suggest you to eat mint gums or chocolate...  Well, you see prevention is always better than cure -- don't eat garlic. ha ha

But then garlic is so delicious, especially when you cook it this way!

You will need:

whole garlics
olive oil
salt and pepper

Cut off the top of the garlic until you expose all of the cloves while intact.  Put it on aluminum foil then drizzle some olive oil over it and salt and pepper to taste.  Put it into the oven for about 30 minutes -- you can't over cook it, the more tender it is, the better.  You can of course do this over a grill too, wrapped inside aluminum foil.

When it's cooked, you're gonna get pure garlic spread, and yup, spread it over a nice piece of buttered toast, then take a bite!

For the lazy cook, you can try Star Margarine infused with Garlic Flavor! All I can say is: not bad at all! :)
