Black garlic is ordinary garlic that has gone through a high heat, long duration, fermentation process. It is a type of aged garlic which is attributed to be browned by the chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars that gives browned food its distinctive flavour.
We would describe the flavour as sweet, savory, and umami, with subtle licorice, molasses, date and garlic notes. The mix of the chewy texture and flavour makes the product irresistible and the best thing, no garlic breath!
Black garlic is slightly dried and sweeter than its white counterpart. It is a versatile ingredient.
