"My final, considered judgment is that the hardy bulb blesses and ennobles everything it touches - with the possible exception of ice cream and pie."

The refrigerator light goes on...

OK, it's garlic and it's for your sandwich. It seems so simple but there is a perfect blend of rich garlic flavor, umami and slight saltiness from the parmesan and sweetness from the honey. It takes just a bit to make your sandwich amazing.

The Garlic Roaster

I couldn't live without this utensil. The best ones are made of clayand have a glazed dish so that the oil won't absorb into the clay. They're cheap: ten or fifteen dollars at most and they also come in single bulb sizes. the one I use allows me to roast about four heads at once. Roasted garlic keeps about a week if you put it in a tightly sealed glass container or a zipper bag.

If you dont want to spring for a roaster, using a sauce pan that has a thick bottom will work fine.  I reduce the heat in the oven by about 25, depending on the thickness of the pan.

This recipe makes great leftovers and will keep for about a week in the refrigerator. Keep it in a tightly sealed container so that foods around it do not pick up a garlic flavor. Note that cooking time does not include chilling time.

1 head garlic
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (divided)
1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)
1/2 tsp honey
