Black garlic is very slow cooked garlic bulbs. 

It is an old Korean method of preserving. While it has wonderful health benefits, black garlic has a unique flavour and texture which adds depth and complexity to many culinary dishes.

The slow cooking process breaks down the enzymes which are the pungent flavours present in raw garlic. The Maillard reaction occurs when heat and humidity is controlled to produce new flavour compounds that are more complex. Aged slowly, the cloves slowly caramelise and turn black.

Black garlic has a flavour that is both sweet and savoury lending itself to use in many dishes and on its own. The flavour has been described variously from dark caramel to molasses and balsamic vinegar and truffle-like.

 

Healing Properties…

It was a Japanese researcher, Professor Jin-ichi Sasaki, who first demonstrated the health benefits of black garlic and has helped contribute to its popularity. People were already aware of the benefits of white garlic, but the amount of antioxidants contained is increased tenfold once the garlic is “caramelized”. It is also much more easily absorbed by the body.

Its antioxidant action helps fight against free radicals, strengthens the immune system and prevents the toxicity of drugs. Its S-Allyl cysteine ​​content helps reduce cholesterol, triglyceride levels, lower blood pressure, and increase good cholesterol. It also helps fight some cancers.

In short, it’s good for you, and regular consumption of black garlic is recommended by the WHO.

In Japan and abroad, it is sold as a bulb or in cloves, fresh or dried, and also in the form of dietary supplements like tablets. Its cloves can be eaten with both savory and sweet dishes, or can be enjoyed as is, as a tasty treat that could also be considered an elixir of youth…

 

It can be added as a flavour to omelettes and risotto, used in dressings, sauces, accompanying meats or as it is with a cheese platter.
