Taste the magic...


Black Garlic cloves are a soft, dark brown, nearly black in colour.  The flavours are deep, almost caramelised with a wonderful sweet sour balance.  There is a strong umami kick and hints of aged balsamic, black cardamom, leather, smoke, tamarind and liquorice.  Black Garlic is a unique, truly artisan ingredient, special in its own way like Alba Truffles or Beluga Caviar.
