What is black garlic??
Black garlic is made when heads of garlic are aged under special conditions until the cloves turn black and soften to a smooth, pasty texture. Garlic bulbs are kept for weeks at low temperatures in a humid environment where the enzymes that give fresh garlic its sharpness break down. A Maillard chemical reaction occurs creating its distinctive caramelized flavor.
Black garlic is rich in phytonutrients and other disease-fighting compounds. Garlic is known for a variety of health benefits including its anti-inflammatory effects, immune system support, and improved cardiovascular function. Black garlic can be used by itself, ground into a powder, infused in oil, added to vegetable dishes or minced into sauces or glazes. Come and try it out!
