Balsajo Black Garlic can be eaten straight from the pack and is probably the only ingredient that enhances and carries flavour, yet is good for your health. It is is made by ageing regular white garlic, nothing is added. Move over salt, sugar and fat!
Black Garlic is a type of caramelized garlic first used as a food ingredient in South Korean cuisine. Rich in umami (a substance known for its range of health benefits), Black Garlic works well in tandem with similarly savoury ingredients, particularly red meat. Vegetarian dishes can also benefit from a umami boost too.
One of the remarkable things about Black Garlic is just how many layers of flavour it has. The wonderful balance of sweet and savoury yields notes of molasses, chocolate and dried fruit, coupled with tangy hints of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and tamarind. The texture of Black Garlic is unique too - tender and soft, almost like a jelly, and it can easily be spread with a knife. Unlike white garlic, it doesn't need long, slow cooking to soften the acrid bite, so can be added at any stage of the cooking process.
Prep & Usage
Slice on scrambled eggs for a delicious truffle breakfast. Give beef that next-day unctuousness by adding in bolognese or chilli con carne. Squish in good quality bread and butter for a malt loaf experience.
