Roasting the Garlic

  1. Set oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (205 degrees Celsius)
  2. Remove the top of the head of garlic, exposing the cut tops of the garlic cloves
  3. Place the garlic cut side up in a garlic roaster (or wrapped in aluminum foil with a hole left at the top)
  4. Roast for 60 minutes
  5. Let cool and scoop out the individual garlic cloves, they should be soft.

Roasting the Corn

  1. Heat a grill or a grill pan
  2. Peel the corn husk down, but not off, of the corn like you would with the peel of a banana
  3. Remove the silk from the corn and discard
  4. Push the husk back up the corn to loosely cover it
  5. Place the corn on the grill, turning periodically; 15-20 minutes. You are looking for top of the husks to char off and to have some char marks on the corn
  6. Carefully remove the husk from the corn, the corn will be hot!
  7. Place the flat end of the ear of corn on a cutting board and run your knife down the corn, removing the individual kernels.
