The first step in making your garlic infused olive oil is to carefully separate the garlic cloves. Next, you need to trim their heads and peel them.
Next, take a pan and add the peeled garlic cloves in it. Now, cover them with olive oil and let it come to a simmer.
Keep cooking the garlic cloves on low heat and stir at the same time for 10 to 15 minutes. You should ideally cook them till they turn tender but still retain their shape.
Once they are cooked, you may turn off the heat and let them cool. You can then transfer the oil to an airtight jar or container and refrigerate it for 3-4 weeks.
Strain out the garlic cloves and its ready for use.
Garlic oil is used to enhance the taste of food items. It can be sprinkled over homemade pizza, added to marinades, put under the skin of a chicken for roasting, or just added to a hot pan for sautéing vegetables.
