Black Garlic
Item #: VGG202
Our Price: $8.25



Black Garlic, originally intended as a healthy dietary supplement, has become one of the hottest new "must-have" ingredients in the cutting edge chef's pantry. The unique qualities of Black garlic are the result when whole garlic heads are fermented under heat for several months.

The flavor of black garlic can be difficult to describe - slightly sweet, with subtle hints of licorice and fennel, with subdued, but distinctive, true garlic flavor intact. Its chewy-gooey texture is reminiscent of sun-dried tomatoes or cured olives.

Black Garlic Barbecue Sauce
Break out of your grilling routine and try something a little different from the usual tomato-y barbecue sauce! This sweet-sour-savory sauce, inspired by Asian sauces and marinades, is wonderful on everything from seafood and poultry to beef and pork.

Use a little as a marinade and don't forget to brush the sauce on as it grills. Don't worry if it chars a little - it's even more delicious that way!

Cornish Game Hens with Pomegranate & Black Garlic
We like black garlic. I mean, we like it A LOT!
In fact, we like black garlic so much that we can't help but keep coming up with new ways to use it. Black garlic's subtly sweet and complex flavor goes beautifully with the fruity tang of Pomegranate Molasses and roasted root vegetables in this new recipe. After a little experimentation, we came up with this variation on a classic roasted game hen that is succulent and amazingly delicious.

While you're at it, make up a little extra of the black garlic butter described below. It's great on just about everything - toasted baguette rounds, baked potatoes or simply dolloped onto grilled steaks, chicken breasts, fish or vegetables.

How can something so simple be so darned good?
