Anyone use black garlic?

My brother just introduced me to it.
Tonight I made linguini with olive oil, black garlic, basil, and a bit of ground sausage. It was delicious.

I'm intrigued, where are you getting it? And what sort of texture does it have?

Trader Joe's.

The cloves are very soft. Not at all what I expected.

I really had not heard of it until now. Here's one place that has it. Probably others as well...

http://blackgarlic.foodoro.com/store...k-garlic-55-oz

The above link shows they are out of stock until Jan 5th, but it is one place to look for BG...

Oh, TJ has it. Cool!

Looks like I'll be making a trip to TJs soon. I love me some garlic.

Peter, have you popped one in your mouth for effect? I'm sure it's much different than a fresh one...

I have not popped a whole clove. But I did taste a small piece. Much sweeter than I expected. And not as garlicky.

This is cool! I'll have to incorporate, perhaps with squid ink.

Curious, wouldn't you get the same sweet effect by roasting regular garlic?

Not even close.
I've roasted garlic many times. Doesn't taste anything like black garlic.

Yeah, for roasted garlic to have the same taste, it looks to me like you have to roast it to the point of burnt. :-)

Not as garlicky as noted earlier. If you use it, don't add a ton of other seasonings. Let the black garlic take center stage. Nice simple dishes to show it off at first.

Huh. The Japanese call that "fermented". I always called it spoiled.
I suppose it's perfectly fine to eat once the fruit flies leave, right?

Do not not not use it in a dessert!! Had it in a chocolate dessert made by a chef in a tasting menu and the garlic taste was still too strong.
