Stovetop Garlic Confit

Wondering how to make the classic french treat, garlic confit? Keep reading for my recipe for this multi-purpose delicacy that adds a punch of flavor to any dish.

What can you do with your garlic confit?

  1. Spread it on toast

  2. Whisk the oil and tender garlic with vinegar and spices for a salad dressing

  3. Add a punch of flavor to pasta sauce

  4. Blend seamlessly into any soup

  5. Add to omelettes and egg scrambles

  6. Toss roasted vegetables with a few cloves

  7. Whisk into mashed potatoes



  • 6 Garlic bulbs, cloves peeled

  • 2 Cups olive oil

  • 2 Bay leaves


  1. Add the peels garlic to a sauce pan with the olive oil and bay leaves, ensuring that the cloves are covered by the oil.

  2. Place the pan over medium-low heat until the oil starts a low, bubbling simmer. Then reduce the heat down to low, so that the simmering is reduced to a very low and subtle bubble (almost like a seltzer water).

  3. Allow the garlic to cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once the cloves are golden, pour the oil and garlic into an airtight container or jar.

Storage: store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
