Roasted Garlicky Pork

We put garlic in everything. The more garlicky the better! My grandfather used to poke 20 or 30 wholes in a pork roast and push a whole clove of garlic in there! Then he roast it for hours until the whole house was permeated with the smell of roasting garlic. By the time you ate, you were hungry!
