Hey, so listen. Not to be complainy, or even ungrateful, but:

Whenever I ask for advice or information here, in my journal, or pretty much anywhere on the internet, I'm looking for personal experience, not a Google search. I can search Google myself. I do it every day. But an even greater resource is right here: you. The internet is great for all the information it makes available, but it's even greater for all the people it makes available. There's a recipe for roasted garlic in my cookbook. And I looked at it. But I thought I remembered that Jon's was a little different. I don't mean to pick on you, Rhino, and I apologize for using you as an example; but please, folks, I value your judgement and experience and knowledge more greatly than a recipe written by someone I've never met, and then copy-pasted into a comment.

My favorite part of that recipe was "large garlic bulbs (As many as you need)"

As Manning pointed out to me, "as opposed to more or less than you need?" True dat, my friend ...

Okay, here's my question: when you say "bulb", does that mean the whole big thing that's made up of all the little ones, or is that just one little one? If the former, then it's okay that all the flaky outside part is still on?

Bulb/Head is the big cluster of tiny cloves, yeah. And you can leave the paper on, but I peel it a little, to get the flaky ones off at least ...

When it's done roasting, you just let it cool a bit and you can actually squeeze the contents out onto bread right out of the skin ...

So good. It's the only thing that's been getting me through.

Actually, I'm all good to the good good. But thanks.

that is the actual recipe that i use...i think my mom sent it to me so it's not off a search...and actually i would have backed off if i'd known jon already posted his but the comments were blank when i went in and then after i posted the other 2 showed up....wacky...

Sorry Rhino...Like I said, I apologize for using you as an example...It's one of my little pet peeves, and I was waiting for someone to do it so that I could talk about it...I figured if I brought it up out of nowhere I'd look insane...An ellipsis is NOT an appropriate stand-in for a good ol' period. PLEASE.

no problem. kinda funny how you used ellipsis' in your reply however...you making fun of me? ;)

also, i picked up one of these sonsabitches the other day and while it doesn't look like much, it has become darn useful in the kitchen.
