Cut the top off of each garlic head (the end that comes to a closed point) so that each clove is exposed. Place with cut side up in a small ungreased baking dish; pour water around garlic. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until garlic is very soft. Cool for 5 min. Slowly drizzle oil into the center and over each garlic head. Remove soft garlic from skins; spread on bread or over cooked meats or vegetables.
