    This is confit garlic & real easy to make. Get whole heads of garlic unseperated & unpeeled. Warm enough olive oil to cover the heads add a sprig of thyme,orange peel,peppercorns & salt.when it is bubbling gently pur it over the heads n make sure they are covered completely in oil.Cover & put in a low oven until you can squeeze a clove easily out of its skin. Cool & pack in airtight sterilised jars.I suggest you make a large batch.
    You can reheat these quite well in the microwave or oven.They go real nice with toasted bread & goats cheese except your friends will avoid you for a day or two.Enjoy.............
