    OMG Black Garlic is AWESOME!

    Shop Now
    Just opened a package thinking I'd sample a clove or two before using it as an ingredient. 10 minutes later I've polished off 2 heads of garlic straight up. This stuff is gooooooooood!

    BTW did get around to pairing it with some sharp cheddar cheese.... heaven

    NH I had never heard of black garlic - so googled it
    which one do you mean ???

    Black garlic is a type of fermented garlic used as a food ingredient in Asian cuisine. It is made by fermenting whole bulbs of garlic at high temperature, a process that results in black cloves. The taste is sweet and syrupy with hints of balsamic vinegar[1] or even tamarind.[2] Black garlic's popularity has spread to the United States as it has become a sought-after ingredient used in high-end cuisine. It is unrelated to a genetically unique six-clove garlic also called black garlic and used in countries such as Korea, or with the ornamental plant

    Nom Nom Nom... I love black garlic! Add it any type of dip that you might make and add regular roaster garlic to!

    Its the fermented variety. Very tasty! I think that definition of the taste just about nails it. Kinda like molasses, balsamic, smokey, and garlic (albeit mild) all in one. The consistency is a spreadable sort of softness. Kinda like candied roasted garlic.

    Neckhammer, Where did you buy it from? I've looked for it in my local grocery stores but they don't carry it.

    I got it at Earth Fare. New supermarket that opened up near me. I have never seen it elsewhere. I never looked for it at Whole Foods though.

    I used to work at Earth Fare! That's where I first saw it, too. Never tried it though. Where do you live?

    So it doesn't burn your tongue off like regular garlic?
