This month’s suggestion was a gift from Marcial. I love garlic, and I am an adventuress eater, thus I did not hesitate to try these, and I am so glad I did. They are delicious. I do not know if you can get them at the moment, but if you are planning a mail order treat, these are worth considering. We ate them as an appetizer, a great way to dress up your cart!
“Black garlic is a type of aged garlic whose browning is attributable to Maillard reaction rather than caramelization, first used as a food ingredient in Asian cuisine. It is made by heating whole bulbs of garlic (Allium sativum) over the course of several weeks, a process that results in black cloves. The taste is sweet and syrupy with hints of balsamic vinegar or tamarind. Black garlic’s popularity has spread to the United States as it has become a sought-after ingredient used in high-end cuisine.”
