As talked about on the Faith Middleton Food Schmooze!
What is black garlic? Simply put, it's garlic that has been roasted at a very low temperature for a very long time - up to 44 days! It's full of what the Japanese call "umami" and has a wonderfully complex flavor. Black garlic is sweet meets savory, a perfect mix of molasses-like richness and tangy garlic undertones. It has a tender, almost jelly-like texture with a melt-in-your-mouth consistency similar to a soft dried fruit. Hard to believe, but true. It's a delicious as it is unique.
It's also healthy, Black garlic is loaded with nearly twice as many antioxidants as raw garlic. It also contains s-Allycysteine, which is fancy talk for a natural compound that has been proven to be a factor in cancer prevention. (Min. 2 ounces - Most packages contain more than 2 oz.)
