Roasted Smoked Garlic

When it comes to food, often the simplest things are the best. If you love garlic, you'll love this – simply roasted and then squashed on to a good piece of bread, which is perfectly toasted, it is pretty indulgent.

You could use any garlic but the smoked garlic from The Artisan Smokehouse makes it just that bit more extra special and the garlic bulbs are huge with big fat cloves, so there's plenty to go around. The subtle maple smoke adds a faint but noticeable flavour of smouldering wood, in fact before we used them they filled most of our house with a smell reminiscent of a distant and agreeable bonfire.

Roasting the garlic results in a creamy texture with a sweet taste and if you do have any left you can store, covered, in the fridge for a couple of days, ready to be used in sauces for pasta too.
