Ingredients

1 head garlic (1/4 pound; about 2 1/2 inches in diameter), left intact

1 teaspoon olive oil

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup drained bottled horseradish

1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Directions

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 400F.

Cut off and discard top fourth of garlic head. Drizzle exposed garlic with oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt, then wrap head tightly in foil. Roast garlic until tender, about 1 1/4 hours, then open foil and cool.

While garlic roasts, simmer cream in a 1 1/2- to 2-quart heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 3/4 cup, 20 to 25 minutes, then transfer to a bowl.

Squeeze garlic into a small bowl, discarding skins, and mash together with horseradish, pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt using a fork.

Stir garlic mixture into cream, then chill until ready to use.
