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 as 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.)
