  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   9      bulbs         fresh garlic
   4      cups          kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place 1/8 inch of the salt in the bottom of an 8x8x2-inch baking dish.  Put the garlic bulbs on top of the salt.  then fill the dish with salt until only the tips of the bulbs are showing.

Heat the dish in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  When the garlic is done, the tips will ooze a little oil.  Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool for about 15 minutes.  Remove the bulbs from the salt, cut them in half horizontally, and squeeze the paste from the lcoves.

NOTES : Save the skins and use them to flavor vegetable stock.  Use the salt as garlic salt, or reuse 2-3 times to roast more garlic.  (Eventually the garlic oils in the salt burn and spoil the salt's flavor.)
