I discovered these whole garlic cloves marinated in oil at the deli-section of Wholefoods. They are slightly caramelised, they taste fried or roasted. They are soft, but still slightly crunchy in the middle. Cooked but definitely not mushy. There is still the definite bite of garlic about them, but they don't taste raw.
I then found them at Shaw' and even had something very similar in liberal amounts in dishes at a chinese restaurant.
I tried googling recipes. But I keep seeing these recipes that involve roasting an entire garlic clove with skin, then mushing the softened garlic out of the skins. I've done this before and liked it. But not what I'm looking for.
Does anyone know how to make this marinated caramelised garlic cloves? I am addicted. We bought them for sandwiches but I stand at the fridge eating them straight out of the jar.
