What is Garlic Confit? Garlic Confit is the paste made from Garlic cloves it is slowly cooked which releases the flavours and added with Extra Virgin Olive Oil to preserve.
Why do I want to make Garlic Confit? Not only is this better tasting than just using crushed garlic but the sugars in the Garlic have been released giving it a less acidic/sharp taste that most people don't want in delicate dishes. The flavour is more robust and smooth.
How do I make Confit?
