Black garlic is made by fermenting whole heads of garlic until it undergoes the Maillard reaction, the same phenomenon that gives seared meats their unique flavor. Over the course of weeks, the garlic loses its raw harshness and develops caramelized notes, a molasses-y sweetness and a deep umami flavor reminiscent of truffles. These whole cloves are tender enough to smear on meat, potatoes or bread, but it can also be chopped or sliced into dishes. Use it in any recipe in place of raw garlic for sweet-savory, pungent yet rounded garlic flavor.
