New to me and sampled at today's Gravenstein Apple Fair was the Roasted Garlic Base made by Sonoma Naturals. It's nicely seasoned and mellow, roasted to a healthy brown just on the verge of carmelization to bring out the full flavor. I tasted the paste alone dabbed on a cracker and also mixed with cream cheese. I didn't check the label for ingredients or preservatives, but it has a fresh unadulterated flavor like something I'd make in my own kitchen. It's a terrific convenience product to have on hand for the times you don't have time to roast a head of garlic and want a little of that flavor in a dish.
