Olio Nuovo Slow Roasted Garlic & Croustini
Yield: 12 Hors d’ Oeuvres

Ingredients:
1 Head of Organic Garlic
2012 Twin Sisters Olio Nuovo- as needed
1 small Sweet Baguette
1 pinch Organic Grey Sea Salt

Procedure:
Cut the top of the head of garlic off and drench with olio nuovo. Wrap the garlic up into an aluminum foil bundle and place into a 150 degree oven. Slow roast the garlic until golden brown, approx. 6-8 hours depending upon the size of the head of garlic. Slice the baguette straight across at about a quarter of an inch thickness. Drizzle them with garlic olive oil from the foil bundle. Place on a cookie sheet under the broiler until golden. Once the garlic has cooled squeeze the bottom of the bulb until the cloves squeeze out. Spread the garlic onto the toasts and finish with a sprinkle of sea salt.
