"Confit is a method that preserves food in oil and was used before the invention of refrigeration. Use the garlic cloves in mashed potatoes, pasta, garlic bread, or as a quick way to season steamed veggies. Look for bulbs that have cloves that are tight and the skin should have a purple hue. I've used thyme but feel free to use your favorite fresh herbs."

  1. Cut the tops off the garlic bulbs, place on a clean working surface, and press down firmly with the flat part of a large knife to separate the cloves from the bulb. Remove the skins and discard.
  2. Pour oil into a very small pot; add garlic cloves and thyme.
  3. Turn heat to medium and cook until bubbles start to form. Lower the heat to the lowest possible setting and cook until garlic is soft but not brown, 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the size of the cloves.
  4. Place garlic cloves and oil in an ice cube tray and freeze until firm, 2 to 3 hours. Remove frozen cubes from the tray and store in a freezer bag.
