Two nights before we departed on the next adventure I made a mason jars worth of garlic confit. Once we hit the road I used it more than I expected. If you are a fan of garlic but have not had it prepared confit you will be hooked at first bite. The garlic takes on a mellow sweet flavor that can be used in any recipe that calls for garlic. Having garlic confit on hand always to use in our cooking makes simple camping meals flavorful.
Confit is a form of preserving, I make a mason jars worth at a time which is typically 6-8 heads of garlic and will last a few months.
