Garlic Confit Recipe Recipe

By Earth of Maria

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 mins


▢ 9 bulbs garlic

▢ 2 cups olive oil

▢ 1 tbsp black peppercorns

▢ 1 tsp chilli flakes

▢ 3 springs rosemary

▢ 3 bay leaves

▢ salt and pepper, to taste


1Peel the garlic. To do this, place a few cloves of garlic inside of a sealed jar and shake it vigorously. This way, the skins will become loose and easy to remove. Repeat with the rest of the garlic.

2Place garlic inside of a large saucepan and cover it in the olive oil. Add the peppercorns, chilli flakes, rosemary and bay leaves.

3Bring the oil to a light simmer, then turn down the heat as low as possible. It’s very important for the heat to not be too high – the oil shouldn’t be bubbling. Allow to cook for 30-45 minutes, until the garlic is soft but not completely falling apart.

4Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to cool down fully. You can place it in a cold water bath to speed up this process. Then, use a slotted spoon to transfer the garlic to a jar. Finally, pour in the oil, seal, and store in the fridge.
