I wanted to make garlic mash potatoes. So I thought I would roast the garlic and scallots bebore I added them to the potatoes. This is what I did. I have never tasted roasted garlic, so I am not sure if it came out right or not. Although it was good )))

I removed all the "skin" from the cloves
I took a piece of aluminum foil and placed the cloves in the middle
added some olive oil
Took all the corners of the foil , pinched them together and placed them in the oven @ 350 for 20 min
then opened up the foil and placed back in the oven for 10 min.

They were very squishy when they were done.

Is this correct or is there a better way??

Sounds good to me.

Here is a website that tells how he does it, and has some photos.

All I do to roast garlic is slice off the non-root end to expose the tops of the inner most cloves, drizzle olive oil onto the top, wrap in foil and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. When done all you have to do is pull off a clove and squeeze to remove from the skin. Simple and fast. I guess I should say this is for a whole bulb of garlic.

Your way works great too!

I've done it the same way you did, and it indeed worked out well.

Fine either way. It is a little easier to roast before peeling, and you don't get as smelly because the heat tames the acrid juice. But just so they get soft and easy to mash, and the taste is gentle.
