Yield: Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 whole head garlic (about 2½ ounces), cloves separated and peeled
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

Directions

1. In a small saucepan, combine the garlic cloves and olive oil and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the garlic turns gorcen brown, 10 to 15 minutes. (Do not let the garlic get too dark because the oil with have a bitter taste.)

2. Let cool and then add the red pepper flakes. Infuse for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Refrigerate in a covered container.

Notes

To Prepare Ahead: Through step 2, oil will last 2 to 3 weeks.
