Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut whole garlic ¼ inch from top, following the shape of the head.
Set tip aside.
Lay down a decent sized, flat sheet of aluminum foil.
In center of foil, place whole garlic head, cut side up.
Next to garlic head, place cut piece faced up as well.
Carefully drizzle olive oil on top of garlic, until all gaps seem touched and filled.
Fold foil pieces up on all sides, and wrap garlic piece until completely covered.
Place foil wrapped garlic in a mini CorningWare, and center it.
*You can also use a muffin tin, baking sheet, ect. I love the small CorningWare.
Place in oven for approximately 1 hour.
When finished, remove garlic from oven and let cool in foil for about 10 minutes.
Carefully unwrap, and let cool for another 10 minutes.
Garlic will be very hot, so be careful.
Peel hard skin off, starting from outside going in.
You can peel skin from each clove until it falls out.
I sometimes use a grapefruit spoon, to scoop out softened garlic.
In a small bowl, mash warm garlic with fork until smooth or eat as is.
*Oven times and temps may vary.
