Looking to add something new to your culinary repertoire? Try black garlic. With a single bite you know that this is not your ordinary garlic. According to, black garlic’s flavor combination is both sweet and savory, a perfect mix of molasses-like richness and tangy garlic undertones. It has a tender, almost jelly-like texture with a melt-in-your-mouth consistency similar to soft dried fruit.

Black garlic is produced by a month-long heat-curing process called fermentation. The curing process brings out garlic’s natural antioxidants and elevates them to much higher levels. This makes black garlic the latest superfood!
