Black Garlic, Seasonings & Spices
Black garlic is "caramelized" garlic. It is made by heating whole bulbs of garlic over the course of several weeks, a process that results in black cloves. Bulbs are kept in a humidity-controlled environment at temperatures that range from 140 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit (60 - 77ºC) for 14 to 40 days.
Black Garlic was first used as a food ingredient in Asian cuisine, but has since caught the attention of chefs across the globe, and is used in a wide variety of dishes from Risotto to poached eggs! The taste is sweet and syrupy with hints of balsamic vinegar, liquorice and tamarind.
