I have run out of roasted garlic in the freezer, so this is why I have roasted some today.....The oven was on already for some 'Herb n Garlic bread rolls'...you can scroll down to see them........
I love having roasted garlic on hand in the freezer....I can pop some in a sauce...or gravy.....I even use it in baking sometimes....and it is good when you are desperate coughing with a really bad cold...and you need a good quick soup...Oh yeah, chicken soup...that gets a few dabs of roasted garlic too....Come to think of it...I use it alot....but I never have to put the oven on just for that purpose.....I would never dream of putting the oven on only to roast a few cloves of garlic.
|Ready for roasting...but I normally peel them.......|
|After getting really sticky peeling the roasted cloves.|
.Now I know why I peel them before I roast them...lol

stored in the freezer in a press-seal bag.
While preparing the veg for tea tonight, I decided to cook all of the sweet potato I had on hand...the excess potato will be stored in the freezer in 1 cup batches...This makes it very easy to defrost for baking scones and muffins....I lay them flat and they defrost within 10 minutes. I also do this with mashed banana and pumpkin too.
|Ready for the freezer.|
|Now they just have to dry, and I will put them away until planting time.....|
Yummmm and many thanks Sonia.
Here are the Herb n Garlic bread rolls I made today....they are a bit crowded, but I only have two racks in my oven,...and one was taken up with a roasting Leg of Pork...($4.99 per kg at Aldis...huge leg of Pork for $19.67)
