Peppered Garlic Confit with Prosciutto
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr
Though it's best eaten straightaway, you can also make the confit up to one day in advance and warm before serving. The flavors are concentrated, so a little goes a long way.
Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2 bread slices and 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic mixture)
