4 cups olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoos raw sugar
Heat the oven to 325 degrees.

Using an old-fashioned potato masher or large fork, mash the garlic into a coarse puree. Do not mash all the cloves keep some whole for Pizza etc... Pour the mixture into a wide-mouth storage container and refrigerate.
Put it on bread, use it for aglio e olio, saute vegetables, put the cloves on pizza, paint or drizzle on pizza crust...etc...Russ
