Black garlic?

June 23, 2009 in Good to know, Ingredients

After all these years of using regular (white) garlic, reading about black garlic took me by surprise (bordering on shock even)! It managed to pique my curiosity……and i did some googling about it. Being touted ad the new ‘It’ ingredient, it’s nothing but garlic that’s fermented for a month using a process that gives it a sweet-n-savoury, complex, tangy taste and a chewy texture. What’s more, it’s said to have positive health effects and comes without the pungency that leads to bad breath. That’s a huge bonus i think! Having originated in Korea, it’s now supposed to be the flavour of the seaon in the US! I’m intrigued……..now i just need to get my hands on some!
