  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 head garlic, peeled and minced


  • In a pan over low heat, heat oil until warm (NOT HOT).
  • Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • With a slotted spoon, remove garlic from oil and drain on paper towels.
  • Allow to cool completely and crisp. Store in an airtight container.


Remove the garlic from the hot oil when the color turns light brown as it will continue to cook in the residual heat.
